Bridges, Volume 2

Monash University based Chamber Melange present an exciting collection of modern music from Czech and Romanian composers influenced by European folk music and/or neo-classicism.

This CD focusses on music written by Czech and Romanian composers between the 1930s and 2008, including Otmar Mácha, Alfred Mendelsohn, Tiberiu Olah, and Bohuslav Martinů. Many of the composers featured here were influenced by European folk music and/or neo-classicism, and as such "accessbility" is a keyword that can be readily used to describe the programme. A CD for those interested in music that falls outside of the mainstream but at all times totally engaging.

Chamber Melange, the artists on this piece consist of two leading Monash University staff, Tamara Smolyar (piano) and Ivana Tomášková (Violin).
