"Primavera III: the vessel", featuring a new work of Layale Chaker is out on Pentatone label
Layale Chaker had the great chance to compose a solo cello piece for acclaimed cellist Matt Haimovitz!
The piece called «Before Bloom» is a heartfelt lament in the form of a Middle Eastern taqsim, evoking the flowers and leaves bearing witness to suffering, yet blooming defiantly each Spring.
PRIMAVERA III the vessel is the third of six albums in a momentous series encompassing 81 world premieres for solo cello. This digital album presents 9 new commissions by THE PRIMAVERA PROJECT for groundbreaking, multi-GRAMMY nominated cellist Matt Haimovitz. Composers from diverse backgrounds respond to Sandro Botticelli’s enigmatic painting, Primavera, and the prophetic large-scale triptych, Primavera 2020, by world-renowned contemporary artist Charline von Heyl.
