5006 STELLARI STRING QUARTET "Gocce Stellari" (2006/7)


Both Charlotte Hug (viola and voice) & Frédéric Blondy (piano) use extended techniques on their respective instruments making their duo sound like no other. The feeling varies from agitated and fast to calm and still, and the sound world from acoustic to electronically mysterious even though no electronic manipulation is used. The CD is summed up in Dan Warburton's notes as 'top-notch music made by two outstanding performers with exceptional ears for pitch, rhythm, timbre and structure at the micro and macro level.' 73 minutes.

Special price 8 Euros

CHARLOTTE HUG & FRED LONBERG-HOLM "Fine Extensions" (2009) EMANEM 5012

Two string improvisers from opposite sides of the Atlantic Ocean who get on as though they grew up in the same neighbourhood. They first met in Chicago in 2005, and issued a duo CDR on the limited edition Flying Aspidistra label. Their second record contains the whole of a 2009 concert in Zürich featuring Hug's viola & voice and Lonberg-Holm's cello responding to each other at breathtaking speed. 53 minutes.

Special price 8 Euros

CHARLOTTE HUG "Slipway to Galaxies" (2010) EMANEM 5018

Charlotte Hug's third solo (unaccompanied) CD is the first to feature her voice as well as her viola. The two are used together to create an even more complex instrument than before sometimes sounding like a duo performance. Recorded in her home town of Zürich after several visits to Cork in Ireland, she has subtly absorbed elements of the Celtic tradition into her wordless singing and playing. Her previously known imagination and expertise on the viola are now matched and enhanced by the prowess of her voice. 65 minutes.

Price 12 Euros

5047 STELLARI STRING QUARTET "Vulcan" (2016)
