On behalf of viola player Hyouli Togawa, thirteen vocal artists create new treasures on the theme of childhood.
Japanese-Australian violinist Hyouli Togawa asked thirteen composers from a variety of countries to write pieces dealing with the theme of childhood. The result is the hybrid SACD, which can be described as a treasure trove of contemporary treasures. It is surprising how simply and intelligibly contemporary composers can write when they do not have to live up to the standards of the avant-garde. Their styles are very different. Many used melodies or songs from their childhood as a model, while others set small imaginary scenes to music or wove sound mats on which one could sleep peacefully. None of it is boring, on the contrary: it is a great pleasure to listen to the repertoire that Hyuli Togawa, who recently became a mother, combined with some Allemandes pieces from Johann Sebastian Bach’s cello suites.
