Echoes Playlist
In the 1970s, the motto of ECM Records was the most beautiful sound next to silence. No one has fulfilled that motto more than Anja Lechner and Vasillis Tsabropoulos with their album CHANTS, HYMNS AND DANCES (ECM). Lechner is the German cellist with the Rosamunde Quartet and Greek born Tsabropoulos has several jazz trio albums out. On their new album, they adapt the music of Armenian mystic G.I. Gurdjieff and Thomas de Hartmann in a series of serene improvisations that will have you redefining your concepts of beauty. We talk to the two musicians about their meeting with remarkable music.
