The Power of Indifference

Of all the classical song cycles, Schubert’s ‘Winterreise’ is perhaps the most beloved. Baritone Michael Wilmering and pianist Daan Boertien give a surprising charge to the familiar music, which, in these uncertain times, seems to be a compass for a future whose contours are not yet entirely clear.

About the album

After performing works by the greatest contemporary composers of the 20th and 21st century, Maya Fridman will release another kind of debut, an album featuring her own music. Dark, ambient-like dissonant drones, angelic voices, acoustic and electric cello; The Power of Indifference is a truly unique album by a truly unique artist. The album also marks the first release on the newly-founded TRPTK X label, a sublabel of TRPTK where complete and utter freedom in production methods and techniques are combined with extraordinary musicianship.

This CD was produced with the support of the Anner Bijlsma Award and the Cello Biennale Amsterdam. Using the prize money from the 2018 Anner Bijlsma Award, cello phenomenon Giovanni Sollima set up an intensive development program for four young international cellists – Ayşe Deniz Birdal (Turkey), Maya Fridman (Russia), Abel Selaocoe (South Africa) and Chiara Trentin (Italy). They all were looking to become far more than just soloists playing the standard repertoire. Sollima went with them in search of their musical identity. Who did they want to become in the world of music? What did they want to create? What did they want to convey to their audiences? This cd is the result of the journey MAYA/AYSE/CHIARA made during this project.
