Sejane & Grasis

Oct.03, 2008

CD: Sejane & Grasis

The works of Liene Sējāne & Kristaps Grasis always have themes.

One of the previous themes in their music was dances. The central theme of the new album is images. Images that have inspired the composers, images that form in the listeners mind during a performance, images that allow the listener to identify with new, never before heard sounds.

Every peace of work in this album represents an image or a picture, that gives you a starting point, for a voyage through your imagination, to remember this music in pictures and images.

Parallels

Dec.04, 2004

CD: Parallels
On this CD, the subdued sound of chamber music is coupled with the rhythm and beat of rock. This is particularly evident in K. Grasis’ three-part piece, “Trois rêves d’un clown,” which took second place at the 16th International Composers’ Competition in Siegburg in 2004, and in Juris Sejans work “Parallels,” which was written over 25 years ago, but in the interpretation of this ensemble has acquired a new and modern sound. The title of this piece was also chosen as the title for the CD because it so well expresses what this music is about – the parallels of classical and contemporary music.

Music must capture the interest of the listener, make the listener want to hear this music again – and more of the same. Liene Sejane and Kristaps Grasis hope they have accomplished this with “Parallels.”
