Mmm these are lovely.
Sometimes I just get the urge to listen to this. On repeat. Playing the last movement (16:00) and feeling all of that sound build up all around me was one of the most exhilarating moments of my life. There is nothing quite like hearing music from the inside of an ensemble. It’s off balance, sure, but it’s totally enveloping. And normally, doing tremolo for an extended period of time is a bit of a chore but in this it was as if I was about to take flight, my arm felt so fast, so light. My heart still smiles whenever I listen to this.
