“Now that the whole world is literally and figuratively shaken up, we want to reach people with special music from a time in which everything was also at risk: the period after the First World War.

Press reviews

Luister 9 out of 5

Lyricism is a key word. In the music itself but also in the round, warm and relaxed playing of Anastasia Feruleva, in the sparkling accompaniment of Frank van de Laar and in the recording, which gives attention to the smallest details.

Alpha Audio

Anastasia Feruleva and Frank van de Laar have released the album ‘L’esprit du temps’, with music from the period after the First World War. Composers such as Igor Strawinsky, George Enescu and the sisters Nadia and Lily Boulanger come into the limelight. The rarely played ‘Cello sonata op. 26 no.2’ by Enescu is, in the duo’s opinion, one of the highlights of the cello repertoire of the twentieth century.

In recent years they have often performed this extremely refined, differentiated, and complex work to constantly discover new layers and details. Also special is the recording of ‘D’un soir triste’ by Lili Boulanger, a work known in versions for orchestra and piano trio.

Due to the early death of the composer, the third variant, for cello and piano, has remained unpublished to this day. Based on the original manuscript it has been completed by the duo. A true album premiere! Finally, Strawinsky’s ‘Suite Italienne’ and Nadia Boulanger’s ‘Trois pièces’ complete the picture, bringing to life the spirit of the famous ‘Salon Boulanger’ in Paris.
