Digital Booklet - only with album
Titles often occur to Reinhard David Flender only after he has completed a composition. When listening to Aurora, for example, "a visual association is evoked. The piece starts with a long double bass tone. Then a high pitched tone played by oboe and harp comes in, briefly at first, repeated at intervals; as the piece proceeds it is joined by other tones, until a short melody emerges. Thus the title Aurora, the first rays of sun at the crack of dawn, which then give way to a shape: the dome of the solar disc." Threnos IV is dedicated to the memory of Flender's father: "Here six strings meet with a compact quartet comprising a piano duo and a percussion duo. But far from being overpowered – as I had feared initially – the strings are the soul of the ensemble." In Pirkei Tehillim the composer has set three psalms in Hebrew to music; this work was inspired by Flender's intensive study of oriental music. And last but not least Memorare, "certainly the most 'romantic' composition on this album," a piano quartet contemplating the riches of a life lived and come to terms with. Reinhard David Flender's chamber music comes to the point all by itself – without having to resort to any superficial effects.
