This disc connects Hindemith to Berio to Underhill and features the extraordinary cellist and ensemble member Ariel Barnes, one of Canada’s most creative and distinctive vocalists Fides Krucker, and a premiere recording of a new Cello Concerto from the ensemble’s Artistic Director. Kammermusik No. 3 by Paul Hindemith was composed for his brother, the cellist Rudolf Hindemith. Folk Songs for Mezzo-Soprano and seven instruments by Luciano Berio was once a dream of Fides Krucker to perform: The composer’s ex-wife Cathy Perberian’s recording was a huge inspiration for her (“Her curiosity and fearlessness opened my mind and heart”). Owen Underhill’s Cello Concerto was composed for Ariel Barnes and the Canadian Turning Point Ensemble.
