Igor Stravinsky once said, “The only fitting comment on a piece of music is another piece of music,” and this thought has also fascinated Brisk for many years. Through the ages, compositions have been arranged for different instruments, embellished, or used as a source of inspiration to write entirely new pieces. Putting early music in new settings is an essential part of Brisk’s identity. The quartet has made many transcriptions and arrangements of both vocal and instrumental compositions, and often writes its own elaborate diminutions for existing pieces. Modern composers have been invited by Brisk to write a musical comment on a certain style or composition. All these things can be heard on this album with music from Spain and Portugal. The music reflects many different stylistic periods, from the end of the 15th century until today, and illustrates the influence of the different cultures which left their traces in Spain and Portugal. Hymns and chansons of the 16th century are combined with songs of a later date together with 21st century pieces inspired by fado and Sephardic songs.
