Description:
♦   After a decade of shared work in the Tarkovsky Quartet and an ongoing alliance in the Pergolesi Project, German cellist Anja Lechner and French pianist Francois Couturier unveil their new duo.
♦   The players approach the music from different vantage points: Lechner is a classical soloist with an uncommon interest in improvisation, Couturier a jazz musician travelling ever further from jazz.
♦   On 'Moderato cantabile' they present their own arrangements of works by three fascinating outsiders from the margins of music history — G.I. Gurdjieff, Komitas and Federico Mompou.
♦   To differing degrees their music reveals influences from the east, both in terms of relationship to folk traditions and religious music, and philosophically. A contemplative air pervades the session. The programme has connections to Anja Lechner's acclaimed account of Gurdjieff's music on the earlier Chants, Hymns and Dances (9819613, with Vassilis Tsabropoulos), but the new duo has its own identity, and time spent in Armenia has deepened Lechner's understanding of the contexts from which the music emerged: her cello assumes almost a singer's role in these pieces, exploring the strong melodies.
♦   François Couturier's compositions function as both contrasting and complementary elements. As a player, François has a long history of working with Mompou's music. He has been influenced, furthermore, by his association with Anouar Brahem, and the sonorities of the Middle East are part of his palette.
♦   'Moderato cantabile', a striking and unusual album, was recorded in the rich acoustics of the Lugano studio in November 2013 and produced by Manfred Eicher.

Biography
♦   Was Anja Lechners Spiel auszeichnet, ist neben technischer Perfektion und musikalischer Tiefe seine Vielseitigkeit. Ungeachtet ihrer klassischen Ausbildung verfügt die Cellistin über außergewöhnliche Fähigkeiten zur Improvisation. Früh hat Anja Lechner dieses Talent zum freien Spiel entdeckt, ihr Repertoire umfasst längst nicht mehr nur klassische Kammermusik. Die Neugierde der Cellistin, dem Fremden, Unsagbaren in der Musik nachzuspüren, macht sie zur Forscherin im Grenzbereich von notierter und improvisierter Musik, lässt sie die unterschiedlichsten Kulturen und Regionen der Welt musikalisch erkunden. Eine Vielzahl verschiedener Kooperationen und Projekte spiegelt Anja Lechners Talent zu einfühlsamer Interpretation und Improvisation in unterschiedlichen Klangwelten wieder, ihr eigener, unverwechselbarer, warmer, klarer Ton bleibt dabei stets spürbar.
♦   Einem breiten Publikum bekannt wurde Anja Lechner als Gründungsmitglied des Rosamunde Quartetts, das von 1991 bis zu seiner Auflösung 2009 zu den gefragtesten und innovativsten Streichquartetten in der internationalen Musikszene zählte. Die zahlreichen Einspielungen für ECM Records wurden von der Kritik hoch gelobt und mehrfach ausgezeichnet (u.a. zweimal Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik, Grammy—Nominierung). Das Quartett gastierte bei internationalen Festivals und Konzerten u. a. im Amsterdamer Concertgebouw, der Londoner Wigmore Hall, dem Megaron in Athen oder der Berliner Philharmonie.
♦   Das Spektrum von Anja Lechners musikalischer Arbeit reicht von regelmäßigen solistischen Auftritten mit Orchestern wie dem Münchner Kammerorchester, der Amsterdam Sinfonietta, dem Tallinn Chamber Orchestra oder dem Armenian Philharmonic Orchestra über Uraufführungen eigens für sie komponierter Werke von Komponisten wie Tigran Mansurian, Valentin Silvestrov, Zad Moultaka, Alexandra Filonenko oder Annette Focks, bis hin zu Projekten im Grenzbereich der Kulturen, Genres und Stile. Ihre langjährige Zusammenarbeit mit dem argentinischen Bandoneon-Meister Dino Saluzzi (“As close to perfection as any music-making I can recently recall” Richard Cook, Jazz Review ), wurde 2011 von dem Filmemacher Norbert Wiedmer (Sounds and Silence) in dem umfassenden Portrait „El Encuentro ein Film für Bandoneon und Violoncello“ dokumentiert. In kammermusikalischen Ensembles musiziert sie mit Künstlern wie, Alexej Lubimov, Kirill Gerstein, Patricia Kopatchinskaja, Pablo Márquez, Reto Bieri und Agnès Vesterman, oder mit improvisierenden Musikern wie François Couturier, Vassilis Tsabropoulos, Maria Pia de Vito, Eivind Aarset und Michele Rabbia .
♦   Seit 1996 entstanden bei ECM Records eine Reihe herausragender Aufnahmen, die die Cellistin als unverwechselbare Stimme international bekannt gemacht haben. Geboren in Kassel, wuchs Anja Lechner in Neubeuern am Inn auf und studierte bei Heinrich Schiff in Köln und Basel. Ein Stipendium der Studienstiftung des deutschen Volkes ermöglichte ihr einen Aufenthalt in Bloomington/USA, wo sie bei Janos Starker weitere Anregungen erhielt.
----------- biography — english version -----------
♦   “Anja Lechner's cello is an open window welcoming all pure sounds of music coming from all corners of the world.” — Tigran Mansurian
♦   The broad spectrum of cellist Anja Lechner’s work embraces performances as soloist with orchestras, classical and contemporary chamber music as well as projects referencing diverse improvisational traditions.
♦   She has premiered works by composers including Tigran Mansurian, Valentin Silvestrov, Annette Focks, Alexandra Filonenko and, recently, Zad Moultaka’s “Mystery of Mysteries” with Pablo Márquez. In the 2012 season, Anja Lechner performs Mansurian’s double concerto for violin and violoncello in Amsterdam together with Patricia Kopatchinskaja, and gives the first performance of a new piece by Mansurian for cello and chamber orchestra, concerts by ECM, the label for which she has recorded since 1996.
♦   Other highlights this season include, with Reto Bieri and the Camerata Zürich, the performance of Mansurian’s Postludium for Clarinet, Cello and Strings in a programme incorporating solo performance of Silvestrov’s Elegie for Solo Cello and Two Tam-Tams. Lechner’s affinity for Silvestrov’s music has previously led to participation in recordings including the Grammy-nominated “leggiero, pesante.”
♦   Márquez , Bieri and Kopatschinskaja are amongst her frequent chamber partners: others have included pianists Alexei Lubimov, Silke Avenhaus and Kirill Gerstein, cellist Agnès Vesterman, and violist Tatjana Masurenko.
♦   Anja Lechner’s long-running artistic collaboration with Argentine bandoneonist-composer Dino Saluzzi is the subject of “El Encuentro”, a new film by Norbert Wiedmer and Enrique Ros. She can be heard on recordings with Saluzzi including “Navidad de los Andes”, “Ojos negros” and, with the Rosamunde Quartet, “Kultrum”. From 1992 until its disbanding 18 years later, Lechner was the cellist of the Munich-based Rosamunde Quartet, whose internationally-acclaimed ECM New Series recordings include music of Mansurian, Schoeck, Larcher, Webern, Shostakovich, Burian, Haydn, Yoffe, and more.
♦   Projects in preparation for 2013 include the premiere of Vladimir Godar’s cello concerto with the Slovak Philharmonic.
♦   In 2004, Lechner and Greek pianist Vassilis Tsabropoulos topped the US classical charts with “Chants, Hymns and Dances", featuring music of composer-philosopher G.I. Gurdjieff. A new duo, with French pianist François Couturier, continues to reference Gurdjieff, as well as Federico Mompou and Anouar Brahem, and adds Couturier’s own compositions to the stylistic mix, with repertoire situated at the crossroads of East and West. Lechner also performs in the Couturier’s Tarkovsky Quartet, which plays music inspired by the films of its namesake, sometimes accompanied in concert by the video projections of Andrey Tarkovsky Jr.
Born in Kassel, Germany, Anja Lechner studied with Heinrich Schiff in Cologne and Basle and, with a scholarship from the Deutsche Studienstiftung, with Janos Starker in Bloomington.
♦   “One of the most gifted cellists in the world, often bridging the gap between contemporary and traditional, east and west, and arranged and improvisational music. She brings unimpeachable technical skills, a rich and warm tone and the interpretive soul of a poet to every performance, onstage and on record.” — Greg Cahill, Strings, USA
----------- biographie — version française -----------
♦   “Le violoncelle d’Anja Lechner est une fenêtre ouverte accueillant tous les sons purs des musiques venant de tous les coins du monde.” — Tigran Mansurian
♦   Née à Kassel, en Allemagne, Anja Lechner a étudié avec Heinrich Schiff et Janos Starker. De 1991 jusqu'à sa dissolution 18 ans plus tard, elle a été la violoncelliste du fameux Rosamunde Quartet, quatuor munichois de renommée internationale, dont les enregistrements chez ECM New Series furent consacrés à la musique des Mansurian, Silvestrov, Schoeck, Larcher, Webern, Chostakovich, Haydn, Saluzzi et Boris Yoffe.
♦   Le champ musical d'Anja Lechner est exceptionnellement étendu et passe du concert solo avec orchestre (Orchestre de Chambre de Munich ou l'Orchestre de chambre de Tallinn), à la musique de chambre. Citons parmi ses partenaires les pianistes Alexei Lubimov, Silke Avenhaus et Kirill Gerstein, la violoncelliste Agnès Vesterman, la violoniste Patricia Kopatchinskaja, le clarinettiste Reto Bieri ou le guitariste Pablo Márquez ..
♦   Elle a créé de nombreuses œuvres qui lui furent dédiées par les compositeurs Valentin Silvestrov, Tigran Mansurian, Annette Focks et Alexandra Filonenko.
♦   Depuis 1998, Anja Lechner poursuit un compagnonnage continu avec le grand bandonéoniste argentin Dino Saluzzi. Leur duo a fait l’objet d’un documentaire remarqué et distingué "Sounds and Silence» et de l'album en duo "Ojos Negros" paru en 2007 désigné comme « album de l'année » par le magazine américain Down Beat.
♦   Elle apparaît aussi dans «Encuentro El Saluzzi », enregistré avec le Metropole Orkestra, et sur un album en trio en 2011 avec Dino Saluzzi et Felix, "Navidad Los Andes ».
♦   En 2000, Anja Lechner a créé un duo avec le pianiste grec Vassilis Tsabropoulos. Leur premier album, "Chants, Hymnes et Danses", consacrée à la musique du compositeur-philosophe IG Gurdjieff, est arrivé en tête des ventes classiques aux Etats-Unis. Pour leur deuxième album "Melos" en paru en 2008, ils se associés au percussionniste italien UT Gandhi.
♦   Parallèlement à ses activités classiques, Anja Lechner s’est intensément impliquée dans l'improvisation à travers ses différentes traditions. Elle est membre du quatuor de François Couturier « Tarkovsky » (en référence au cinéaste à Andreï Tarkovsky auquel plusieurs enregistrements chez ECM rendent hommage). Elle a aussi collaboré avec Misha Alperin, Sylvie Courvoisier, Mark Feldman, Ketil Bjørnstad, Arild Andersen entre autres.
♦   Les projets avec François Couturier, en particulier, se risquent aux limites des idiomes classique et jazz, et explorent librement des approches de Bach et de Pergolèse, en compagnie de la chanteuse Maria Pia de Vito et du percussionniste Michele Rabbia.
♦   «L'une des violoncellistes les plus douées au monde, comble souvent le fossé entre le contemporain et le traditionnel, l’est et l’ouest, la musique écrite et improvisée. Elle ajoute à d’irréprochables compétences techniques, une tonalité riche et chaleureuse et l'âme interprète d'un poète à chaque apparition, à la scène et au disque.» — Greg Cahill, Cordes, Etats-Unis                                                                              © Baptiste Lignel
