On its debut recording, the Belgian ensemble Boho Strings showcases the versatility of composer Wim Henderickx, whose repertoire ranges from experiments in modernism to nearly silent transcendent soundscapes. Acclaimed soloists Roeland Hendrikx, Valerie Debaele and Lin Chin Cheng join Boho Strings and conductor David Ramael on the album.

Inasmuch as the works featured on this CD are revisions of earlier work, some specifically prepared for this recording, they capture the progress in a career which spans three decades. The most audible development is Henderickx's heightened sensitivity to inspiration from the East, which lends exoticism and the occasional melancholy to a diverse but reassuringly recognizable oeuvre.

With his new 13-player string orchestra Boho Strings, conductor David Ramael was originally inspired by the rich cultural and ethnic diversity of his birthplace and hometown Borgerhout. Cognisant of the importance of dialogue in this rich melting pot of cultures and traditions, he seeks to rethink the format of classical music concerts, inviting the listener to participate in a meaningful dialogue with the musicians - before, during and after the performance - on a wide range of social, demographic, cultural and ecological issues.
