Following his luminous orchestration of Schubert’s String Quartet in G Major and his own “Zerkalo” with Kremer and friends, Between Two Waves is Kissine’s first ECM album devoted entirely to the compositions of the composer from St. Petersburg. The flavor of the sea pervades the three recent compositions heard here, variously inspired by the poetry of Mandelstam and Brodsky: the concerto for piano and string orchestra “Between Two Waves”, the Duo (After Osip Mandelstam) for viola and violoncello, and “Barcarola” for violin, string orchestra and percussion. All three pieces are dedicated to the collaborating players – Gidon Kremer and the musicians of Kremerata Baltica.
