ODE an die Rhapsodie – our New CD (GENUIN CLASSICS) AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE IN STORE AND ONLINE FROM 2ND OF NOVEMBER
CD of the week from the 19th of November at Kulturradio Rundfunk Berlin Brandenburg
It takes courage to collect so many unknown works on a debut CD. The result however speaks for itself: with great virtuosity dedication, Duo Kermani-Gentili shows what treasures you can find when you open your ears to search for them.
– Ulrike Jährling, Kulturradio vom rbb
“Rhapsody” is the theme of fabulous duo debut album featuring clarinetist Kymia Kermani and pianist Alba Gentili-Tedeschi. With great intensity, the young musicians plunge into the music […] This is truly a stroke of luck, not only for curious chamber music fans, but for fans of all quality music!
– Naxos Direct
The strength of the applause is enormous. And it increases even more after “Rhapsody in Blue” by Gershwin. The two evenly matched instrumentalists present this classic in their own way, in their expression with great freedom and fine sound colours.
– Inez Bandoly, Oranienburger Generalanzeiger
“Hearing their performance of my Trio was an absolute joy: This is an exceptionally gifted group with a very particular sound; they combine tremendous virtuosity and panache with a profound sense of lyricism and shape, every line, every phrase imbued with depth, sincerity and beauty.”
– Marcus Paus, composer
