In the pantheon of immortal combinations of musical instruments, there must be a special temple for the piano and cello. It's hard to think of another duo that offers more musical possibilities, or draws more effectively on the respective strengths of both instruments.
From the piano, we get effortless rhythmic definition, chords, and harmonies; from the cello, long, singing lines and rich overtones that stretch melody to the boundaries of expression. Together, they define a musical landscape of emotional range, depth, and beauty.
On this transmission of Hearts of Space, we celebrate the piano and cello...on an autumnal journey derived from the Byzantine hymns, traditional folk and sacred Sufi music of Central Asia... called MELOS.
Music is by VASSILIS TSABROPOULOS, G.I.GURDJIEFF and THOMAS DeHARTMANN, MANUEL DE FALLA, MISHA ALPERIN, and HANS CHRISTIAN, and features the wonderful German cellist ANJA LECHNER.
