... And then it turned out that the “Hungarian” element often gave us the chance to create smooth transitions between one composer and the other. It ends up sounding incredibly natural to us. The two composers are directing their gaze toward the same horizon: to the East...
Where did you get the idea of commissioning Özkan Manav to compose a work for your duo?
Composing in Vienna and Frankfurt respectively, Brahms and Hindemith found their inspiration in Hungarian folk tunes. Özkan Manav arranged an Armenian folk dance; in Paris, Stravinsky revisited the folk music of his Russian homeland to write ‘Sacre’. To what extent do those gazes towards the East and the variety of musical cultures represented on your CD bear autobiographical traits?
Ensari: Each one of us emigrated from the “East” to Germany...
Schuch: Furthermore, Brahms was able to appropriate the Hungarian style until it became his own musical language, thereby revealing a more down-to-earth, uncomplicated side of his nature. It’s truly moving to see how someone can adopt a foreign element that ends up enriching his own personality. ......... And we didn’t choose the subject of dance by mere chance: we just love to dance.
