Marek Pospieszalski presents the next album of his quartet. The music on "Dürer’s Mother" is inspired by the work ofs 19th and 20th century composers, from Schubert to Britten to Lachenmann. Pospieszalski's compositions, full of references to the works of masters, are immersed in contemporary times and go into unexplored areas of free improvisation. They are a starting point for an open and multifaceted interpretation, in which the other members of Pospieszalski's ensemble find themselves masterfully. A lot has already been expressed within the classical quartet formula, however, this encourages the musicians to search for new forms of expression, placing the main emphasis on tone color, using non-standard consonance, or provoking cross-genre meetings.
Marek Pospieszalski Quartet is at the forefront of the European improvised scene. Each of the musicians has an individual sound resulting from their diverse musical experiences. Apart from one of the most sought-after double bass players, Max Mucha, we can also hear Elias Stemeseder on piano and Max Andrzejewski on drums. The material was recorded at Berlin's Emil Berliner Studios, with the Jeremy Loucas responsible for mixing and mastering.
