"Rachmaninoff’s third symphony communicates, in a very moving way, the life-long struggle of one of Russia’s greatest musicians with this genre. The result is… absolutely magnificent: the musical inspiration is overflowing; the themes and melodies are, as always by Rachmaninoff, inimitable; but more especially, the many changes of mood, achieved by an extremely artistic instrumentation, are unique." Gabriel Feltz

"Ensemble Extrakte – this name outlines a musical program. The thirteen treatises in this album are seismographic soundscapes of uncommon encounters. When we brought together the eleven musical polyglots of Ensemble Extrakte in music, they came from widely different musical backgrounds and cultures; some were virtuosos in more than one genre or tradition. To each of us, music meant something else, they made their music for different communities and contexts. But they all lived in Berlin – and our idea was to create a music that would truly reflect this new ensemble, its roots and its global aspirations." Sandeep Bhagwati

"How did I come to make a CD just with songs about mothers and daughters? My daughter was away for three weeks during the summer holidays and I wanted to use the creatively to record a CD. I looked at my favourite songs and discovered that three of them had this thematic connection. The obvious thing to do was to take this as a theme, so I sat down with both of my pianists and we looked for other such songs. We found over thirty of them, from which we chose the most beautiful songs and those we thought the most fitting. It was to be the most poetic summer of my life! I devoured books on the subject, watched films and talked to mothers and daughters about this most enthralling of all relationships. It was a source of infinite joy for me to slip into the roles of all these mothers and daughters and I wish you just as much joy while listening!" Dorothe Ingenfeld
