Quarant(aine)e: Music For Cello & Piano


Cellist Oihana Aristizabal Puga and pianist Lineke Lever will both turn 40 in the same week of the spring of 2021; their dual anniversaries were the inspiration for this CD.

They delved deeply into the lives of several composers, exploring not only how the world might have looked in their time, but also whether they were married and had children, as well as the music they composed at that time. One composer might have been happily married, another greatly concerned about alarming events such as WW1, while yet another might have suffered from depression. This program dwells upon the juxtaposition of being forty then and now.

Oihana Aristizabal Puga and Lineke Lever shed light on this diversity with music from the French Cecile Chaminade, the British Frank Bridge, the French Camille Saint-Saens and the Italian Ottorino Respighi.

Oihana Aristizabal Puga was born in Irun in the Basque region of Spain in 1981. Lineke Lever was born in Maastricht in the Netherlands in that same year. Especially for them, the Basque poet Erika Lagoma Pombar and the Maastricht-based poet Wiel Kusters each wrote and recorded a poem for this CD.

Through these poems Oihana and Lineke both acknowledge their roots and consider the places where their lives began forty years earlier.
