Bittova, bitte schön!

From BILE INFERNO, the song „Sirka v Iouzi“, performed by Vladimir Vaclavek and Iva Bittova, Czech avantgarde violinist, singer and composer. Her solo album FRAGMENTS (ecm) will be released on the 8th of march.

Czech singer/player/composer Iva Bittová has said: „The violin is a mirror reflecting my dreams and imagination. I believe there are fundamentals to my performance, such as the music’s vibration and resonance between violin and my voice.“ That relationship is beautifully explored on this album – recorded at Auditorio Radiotelevisione svizzera, Lugano, and produced by Manfred Eicher– which expresses the essence of Bittova’s unique and extraordinary solo work. The pieces here, modestly-titled „Fragments I-XII“ resist definition. An idiosyncratic „folk“ music, contemporary composition, improvisation, any and all of these may apply from moment to moment. Bittová´s music is a living, changing thing: „Deciding on a name for my style of music is far from over yet“. (Source: ECM HQ)

One piece will be played in the next edition of „Klanghorizonte“.
