Solo Violin Recital (2006) — János Négyesy – Avant-garde Classical

János Négyesy has long excelled in interpreting contemporary music, bringing his élan to a repertoire ranging from Rihm to Reynolds, from late Cardew to Cage’s peerlessly difficult Freeman Etudes. His curiosity and enthusiasm are abundantly evident in this new collection, which presents the work of five women of very different generations and styles — the exotic textures of Kaija Saariaho, the post-Bergian expressionism of Bun-Ching Lam, the fervent energy of Athanasia Tzanou, the enigmatic and mobile aphorisms of Marita Bolles, the haunting (or haunted) simplicities of Alice Samter. What weaves these dissimilar works into a coherent program is János’ warmth and vigor, a robust generosity all too exceptional in new music performance: a new recording from János is a matter for celebration.
