Daniel Rowland and Alberto Mesirca met at the Kuhmo Festival some years ago and discovered a shared love of the transparent, lyrical and colourful repertoire for violin and guitar. Their first disc, ‘Favorites’, for the Viennese label Orlando Records, was released in December 2015. The recording – which received excellent reviews - comprises a vivid, virtuosic and fun programme which is full of contrasts and highlights the wonderful, yet relatively unknown, repertoire for this combination of instruments. Daniel and Alberto are both members of the contemporary tango quintet ChamberJam Europe, with bandoneonist Marcelo Nisinman, pianist Natacha Kudritskaya and bass player Zoran Markovic. The group released its debut disc ‘Tangos del angel y del Diablo’ in Berlin on the Berliner MeisterSchallplatten label in June ’14; they have now made a second recording for the same label, which will be released later this year.
The Rowland Kudritskaya partnership brings together two of the most exciting, adventurous and colourful artists performing today. They have recently released their first CD, Les Années Folles, to great acclaim
