Duende Trio - Mosaic

Duende is a spanish word that translates badly into a variety of english equivalents: goblin, dark spirit, inspiration, charm, magic, charisma, personal magnetism. The great spanish poet Frederico Garcia Lorca wrote of duende, describing it as a dark, earthy, creative force, visceral rather than intellectual.
The three contemporary musicains who make up this trio known as Duende have set out to discover the future through the past. They are part of the vanguar of classical players whoa re reviging the lost art of improvisation, treating audiences to fresh interpretations of old music as well as music that is created on the spot.
This recording takes a wide variety of early music pieces as sources for improvisation. There is no attempt to be 'authentic' by using original instruments or in strictly following written manuscripts, but what is absolutely authentic is the spirit of improvisation that imbues each performance.
It's time for classical musicians to take a new look at what they play and how the play it. It is time for classical musicians to reclaim their birthright of creation - in addition to re-creation. Performers, audience, and tradition will be the richer for it.
