Huddersfield Contemporary Records has announced the release of American violinist Sarah Saviet‘s new album: ‘Speak, be Silent‘.
Recorded with musicians from the London-based Riot Ensemble, the disc features composer Liza Lim‘s recently-premiered ‘Speak, Be Silent‘ Violin Concerto – coupled with new works by contemporary composers Chaya Czernowin, Anna Thorvaldadottir, Mirela Ivičević and Rebecca Saunders.
”The initial idea for this disc came after a concert in which we gave the UK premiere of Liza Lim’s stunning violin concerto ‘Speak, Be Silent‘ …” Sarah has told The Violin Channel.
“The rest of the album fell easily into place … we picked works by composers we admire that offer strongly individual sound worlds and timbral explorations … four of these pieces have never been recorded before and we were particularly excited to be able to work closely with each composer before recording this album,” she has said.
”I hope listeners will come away from this disc excited, inspired and with heightened curiosity to listen to more music from these brilliant musical voices!”
