BMC Records Gergely Vajda's Clarinet Symphony on BMC Records

New release on BMC Records:

BMC CD 274

Everything comes full circle. Some time in the early 1990s I wrote my first pieces for my own instrument, the clarinet. These pieces are still valid, and they work as music. There is something natural in a composer performing his own works. Music composed by a performer-composer is idiomatic by default: the marriage of technique and content takes place without the often unrequested but indispensable help of the match-makers, virtuosos and conductors. This of course does not automatically mean that the notes are easy to play. Seeing and hearing this, the audience too feels that they become the part of something original, something valid, that they can receive the information, the experience, without alienation, or without the intervention of an “interpreter”.

(From the liner notes by Vajda Gergely)
