In stock


At his third release for our Zeit Composer Series, the talented Italian flute player Manuel Zurria has given birth to some of the most heartbreaking music ever published by Die Schachtel. A moving and incredibly clever transcription for flutes, glass and electronics of John Dowland's 1604 masterwork Lachrimae functions as the thread between a stunning  and totally rewarding series of pieces by György Kurtag, Peter Eötvos, Gavin Bryars, Mary Jane Leach, Howard Skempton, closing on a composition especially written by Juste Janulyte for this record. This CD is the living proof that contemporay music can be intoxicating.

John Dowland 'Lachrimae Antiquae' (1604). György Kurtág 'Ligatura-message to Frances-Marie op.31b' (1990) version for flute choir and celesta. György Kurtág 'A very slow waltz for Walter Levin' (1995) for flutes and glasses. Mary Jane Leach 'Dowland's Tears' (2011) for ten flutes. Mary Jane Leach 'Trio for Duo' (1985) for four alto flutes and four voices. Gavin Bryars 'Two Lines'(2006) for flute and bass flute. Howard Skempton 'Recessional' (1985) version for four bass flutes. Howard Skempton 'Autumn Waltz' (1976) version for two bass flutes. Peter Eötvös 'Derwishtanz' (1995), version for four flutes. Juste Janulyte Psalms (2014), version for eight bass flutes.

The restless experimentation and creativity of Manuel Zurria has resulted in a brilliant series of collaborative works with legendary composers such as Luc Ferrari, Alvin Lucier, Arvo Part, John Cage, Morton Feldman, László Sáry, Louis Andriessen, Gavin Bryars, Stefano Scodanibbio, Salvatore Sciarrino and Jonathan Harvey. He was invited to many international festival and he recorded for RAI, Dutch radio, Radio France e SudWestfunk Baden-Baden and for Capstone Records, EdiPan, Stradivarius, Die Schachtel, Megadisc and Touch.
