Martina Kachlová, Estera Wityńska, Anna Paluchová, Lucie Vítková - New Dawn Vol. 2 – La Femme Armée
I met these people during the Darmstad Summer School & Festival in 2023. A very open-minded chamber ensemble from Slovakia, specialising in 20th and 21st century music and always eager to perform lesser-known and new works, and to overcome mental and technical challenges in the process.
This CD from 2021 was dedicated to young composers from Slovakia, Czech republic, Latvia and Poland. The common theme – L’homme armé – was used as the beginning point of each original artistic approach.
