Inspired by Poetry - chamber music with voice


It is certainly no coincidence that composer Sylvia Maessen presents herself on this CD with songs performed by her sister, soprano Irene Maessen. She has been composing for Irene for at least a decade, and there's no doubt that Irene inspired Sylvia to compose classical music alongside her profession as a double bass player and arranger. It must be said that Sylvia Maessen is undoubtedly as versatile a composer as she is a performing artist. [...] Her music assumes a certain matter-of-factness, her instrumentations are clear and as distinct as a pen and ink drawing.
