Today marks the release of Yu Kosuge’s first worldwide CD release, on Orchid Classics. The CD is the first volume (Water) from her ‘Four Elements’ project.
For this programme, Yu spent time travelling around Europe doing extensive research on composers looking at where the element ‘water’ and Greek mythology influenced their compositions.
” In Water, Yu Kosuge interprets a rich array of repertoire, from Liszt and Wagner to acclaimed contemporary composer Dai Fujikura. The ‘barcarolle’ takes its rocking rhythms from the motion of a boat: we hear examples by Chopin and Fauré, as well as Venetian Gondola ‘Songs Without Words’ by Mendelssohn.”
The CD is available to buy online by visiting ORCHID MUSIC.
