Digital Booklet - only with album
In her chamber music, which defies easy stylistic categorization, Katia Tchemberdji draws on many sources for inspiration. Her composition style, which was only marginally influenced by fellow students of Edison Denisov and Alfred Schnittke, has always retained its authentic character: “I cannot name a style or school which served as my model – because I shy away from stylistic categorization. …. Music ought to touch and move its listener. In this regard, experiments are possible as well. But the authentic character of music cannot change.” The present CD recording pits two instruments against one another: a clarinet which soars up from dense piano clusters of the first piece, the Sonata für Klarinette und Klavier (1990), and a cello which slowly emerges from sharp piano sounds of the second piece, Atem und Puls (2000). Katia Tchemberdji may have found a kindred soul in M.C. Escher, whose geometrical fantasies are the basis for her homage to Escher, the 1995 piece Tag und Nacht. “What really counts are proportions, not theories. Pieces grow and change on their way to becoming finished compositions. … I always want to get straight to the point.”

Recommendation
“New regions of sound and form”: The appealing combination of mandolin and guitar inspired Lutz-Werner Hesse to venture into new territories of sound. 
Music and carpets? Well, the latter’s slightly irregular patterns certainly inspired Morton Feldman to write his Crippled Symmetry (1983). 
The perfect synthesis of Darmstadt modernism and Russian music – and then for something completely different: Denisov’s music for clarinet changing over the years.
