Navis Classics brings us Reflections, a new album of Classical Chamber Music in Stereo and Multichannel DSD and DXD. In this interview, Sarah Kapustin and Roeland Jagers, members of the Rubens Quartet, talk about the album’s origins:

“Over the last twelve years we have enjoyed acquainting ourselves with the small yet wonderful repertoire for our two instruments, always inserting a duo or two into our concert programs whenever possible. The COVID -19 pandemic has made us even more appreciative of our collaboration, and it sparked the wish to record some of our favorite pieces for posterity.

I play on a violin built around 1690 by G.B. Rogeri from Brescia (Italy). It has a rich and warm sound and over the years it has really become my ‘voice’, my means of expressing myself through music. R: Although my viola is labeled an ancient Gagliano, it was made by Giovanni Pistucci in Naples around 1910. I have been lucky enough to play it for fifteen years now and enjoy its warm yet clear sound every day.

During the lockdown we started brainstorming about which pieces would fit together well and produced this collection of works which all feature the idea of canons and imitation and how those techniques have evolved over the past six centuries.”
