Toon Fret and Veronika Iltchenko are exceptional soloists and form an ideal duo. They share a passion for ensemble playing and a talent to pass on the sacred fire which drives them. This is the reason why we were so keen to invite them. Following their well-received albums Le temps retrouvé and Die Welt von Gestern, Veronika and Toon have now recorded a third CD. Origins contains their discoveries from France, Central Europe and the Caucasus: creations by composers from the interwar period with a distinct musical voice and inspired by national music traditions. Real gems!
