The Uncertainty Principle is a journey into the mystical musical world of Russian composer Alexandre Danilevski, where music and instruments from the middle ages to modern day meet and create an unexpectedly beautiful soundscape.

Danilevskis’ compositions are at the same time refering to ancient sources and to modern art and science, moving through centuries of musical and aesthetic developments with ease and free of conventional restrictions regarding musical styles and paradigms.

On this recording, Danilvski’s own ensemble Syntagma interprets two of his works for mixed ensemble and voice, while the Flanders Recorder Quartet plays his "Antiphones" and cellist Larissa Groeneveld presents "Revelation," a concerto for solo cello.

This unusual disc, titled The Uncertainty Principle, features works for cello, recorder quartet, and singers by Russian composer Alexandre Danilevski¦it¦opened up into one of the most lovely and imaginative works I had ever heard¦Lauda is an extraordinarily interesting piece combining Renaissance plainchant, Japanese-styled recorder lines, and Meredith Monk-like droning. In short, it was absolutely mesmerizing; and, happily, soprano Tóth has a pure, clear, ear-ravishing voice of great effectiveness.
