About

Introduced to each other by mutual friend Dino Saluzzi in 2003, German cellist Anja Lechner and Argentinean guitarist Pablo Marquez have since explored the most diverse repertoire and modes of expression in their concerts and now make their first duo album together.

Its conceptual context is provided by the strong tradition of songs with guitar accompaniment prevalent in 19th-century Vienna, as Lechner and Marquez play music of Franz Schubert. Many of Schubertís songs were published in alternative versions with guitar during the composerís lifetime; in some cases, the guitar version appeared even before the one for piano.

Interspersed on the recording, as an echo and commentary to Schubertís spirit and language, are the graceful Trois Nocturnes originally written for cello and guitar by Friedrich Burgmuller (1806-1874).
