Neue Ridil-CD: Chamber Music Vol. 2

Christian Ridil celebrated his 80th birthday on 12 June 2023 and GENUIN has released the second CD with chamber music works by Ridil. The FAZ describes the music as "contemporary, rhythmically refined, perfect in craftsmanship and form". Exclusively premiere recordings are gathered here. We hear the Eliot Quartet, members of the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra and other excellent musicians. The diverse instrumentation of the works and their very own tonal languages portray a composer with both feet rooted in tradition, yet always seeking new paths: from the two award-winning works Drei Sonette nach Martin Opitz as well as MEYENMUSICK for four horns to the highly acclaimed string quartet Sisifo, a significant contribution to the genre.
