Julija Hartig 'D a r k V e l v e t' - CD Presentatie concert

CD release - let's celebrate!

PLEASE TAKE NOTE: This concert will take place in de Uilenburgersjoel - Nieuwe Uilenburgerstraat 91

Tonight: the CD release of Splendor musician and violinist Julija Hartig: come and celebrate the birth of D a r k V e l v e t !

In Julija's own words:
"From an early age, thanks to the fact that my father was a cellist and a composer, I experienced the creative process and very close collaboration in writing pieces for my instrument, the violin. Later on in my life, the connection to composers came very easy and naturally due to my growing curiosity and passion for the language of new music and as a result of that mutual understanding and inspiration, several pieces were written or arranged for me. My wish was to make most of them a part of the CD D a r k V e l v e t' and in that way present them to the world, to ‘give them life’ , so they would be heard and get a chance to be recognised as part of a violinistic repertoire.

This CD can be seen as an autobiographical story. It is a reflection of my Yugoslav and Dutch identity described in 10 pieces by 8 composers. All of these pieces have their unique musical language and way of expressing thoughts and feelings. From pure honest most tender love to the unearthly sounds in search of answers. Some of them speak about deep sorrow of loss, passionate greed for love and life, brutally distorted decomposed beauty or simply pure wild untamed joy. One thing that is common to all of them is that they were written or arranged for me with a deep understanding of my way of playing which is always intense, honest and expressive. I love them all like my children and enjoy watching them grow. In addition to the selection of already composed music from 1990 on, three new works were written for me, especially as a part of this project."
