About

“So let’s trust our ears. The music unfolds from small gestures. In the opening movement the piano takes the main part and successively combines with various partners. The ear gladly follows through different stages – and then, a small element, a little portamento on the clarinet (the kiss of the little old woman?), is enough to let us know that it is almost over. The music proceeds, delicate, determined; it draws a line that it follows, in the second movement it even moves along a kind of walking bass line. Its dramatic climax continues in the third movement, which is about ‘The Monster and the Big Yellow Poppies’. Deep, powerful chords on the piano – and high notes fluttering above: there’s something threatening about it. The movement ends with an almost menacing fortissimo. Are we scared? Or was that just another intimidating artifice of the Wizard of Oz?”

Japanese composer Noriko Hisada and the Ensemble for New Music in Zurich combine for this new release. The Ensemble for New Music in Zurich, founded in 1985 as a sextet (flute, clarinet, percussion, pianoforte, violin, cello), is devoted exclusively to contemporary music. The musicians plan and design their own programmes. When necessary, the formation is extended by additional singers and instrumentalists.
