Compositions by Jean-Baptiste Lully or Ludwig van Beethoven, who represent the spirit of their time and wrote ‘oriental’ works with European understanding, are contrasted with those of the Syrian clarinettist Kinan Azmeh, who – thanks to his origin – possesses a quite natural and original view of the fascinating Arabic culture. A truly sensual recording!
And highly original too, for this direct-to-disc recording is available exclusively on the pressed LPs, limited copies (as it were) of the original recording on the lacquer disc, comparable to a copy of an etching.
