OUT NOW | Black Oak Ensemble's New CD: 'Silenced Voices' [LISTEN]

Cedille Records has announced the release of the Chicago-based Black Oak Ensemble's new album: 'Silenced Voices'

Cedille Records has this month announced the release of the Chicago-based Black Oak Ensemble's new album: 'Silenced Voices'.

Featuring violinist Desirée Ruhstrat, cellist David Cunliffe and violist Aurélien Pederzoli, the new disc features trio works by six early 20th Century Jewish composers: Dick Kattenburg, Sandor Kuti, Hans Krása, Gideon Klein, Paul Hermann and Géza Frid.

''We initially found two of these string trios in a bookstore in Budapest and read through them .... we loved the music - and realized there was a backstory to all the composers of this era ..." Desirée has told The Violin Channel.

"Bringing these composers to life became our goal and the genesis of this project ... not only are these pieces historically relevant, but they are truly wonderful music," she has said.
