Kritiken

Many of the works on this recording were written for award-winning Duo Ahlert & Schwab, who have contributed greatly to making contemporary music from the United States a significant part of mandolin and guitar repertoire. The mellow tones and chiming sparkle associated with these instruments is represented in a wide diversity of pieces whose styles and influences include fragments of classical forms in Mark Delpriora’s Sonata, references to the mysteries of nature in Daimonelix, named after spiralling rock formations found in Nebraska, electronic music, rock music and Middle Eastern music in Indigo Trails, and chaos theory in Strange Attractor. With this new all-American program they bring to Naxos their successful themed recital format demonstrated by releases on the Antes-Edition label, taking the opportunity to represent the high quality and diversity of new American works written for them in recent years.
