About the event

In the fall of 2023 they will release their first studio album, entitled "Intimate Sketches".Agathe Ensemble brings together the music of 3 great Eastern European composers: Janáček, Bartók and Shostakovich. All tracks, originally conceived as piano miniatures, are arranged and recorded by string players for the first time.

Some of this music is sketchy and intimate, straight out of a diary book. Unfinished, or intended as material for a masterpiece that was never written. Music that tells live experiences and deep emotions. Others are lighter, drawn from local folk music traditions. There is also room for short but carefully composed pieces of music to impress the audience.

- Leos Janáček:Intimate Sketching andThree Moravian folk dances

- Bela Bartok:Three Hungarian folk songs by Csik andAllegro Barbaro

- Dimitri Shostakovich:Dancing of the Puppets and24 prelludes op. 34 (selection)

This will be a Release Concert. The album will be released physically as a CD, alongside an illustrated and designed booklet by Hungarian artist Roland Tóth, inspired by sketches and diaries.

Agathe ensemble: String Quartet + Violin & Cello Duo

- Aleksandra Kwiatkowska, violin

- Ella van de Mespel, violin
