Red Velvet

Music, when combined with a pleasurable idea, is poetry; music without the idea is simply music; the idea without the music is prose from its very definiteness.

About the album

Both music and poetry have the ability to exalt our senses and to heighten our existence. Some compositions on this album were inspired by poems, others merged the heartbeat of the music and the verse into one whole.

Music strives to produce a poetic vision of the universe, with its language that doesn’t need to be translated in order to be understood. It is able to push away the borders between cultures and traditions, and reveal how everything is interconnected, though expressed in different languages and forms. Just as life originates in its absence, and sounds have their source in silence, so do utmost passion and despair wither into serenity. These ideas stream through this album and culminate in Red Velvet.

"The tonality, dynamics, and transparency of the recording are simply perfect. Every nuance can be followed, which makes sure the already fascinating music reached the listener with maximum emotional impact."

Garmt van der Zel, Beter Beeld & Geluid

"Why the highest praise? First of all, because the music is extraordinary, the performances are extraordinary, the atmosphere is extraordinary, the recording is extraordinary, it’s topical, and because poetry, music, and experience melt together on this album."

Emile Stoffels, Luister Magazine
