New Project: The Music of Hans Bakker and Peter Greve

PARMA Artists Peter Greve and Hans Bakker have signed on to record and release a split-album project. The project will feature various chamber pieces that the composers have written over the years.

The two composers met after both of their pieces were placed on the recently released PARMA compilation of contemporary chamber music works, PINNACLE. 

After discovering their names on the release, Hans and Peter were surprised to find out that they actually lived less that 5 kilometers away from each other!

This discovery sparked a new relationship for the composers, and they were able  put their heads together on various parts of the project.

Since the release of PINNACLE, Hans and Peter have been exploring a new split-album project for their music. The pieces will be recorded this summer, and the composers will be working closely together at each step.

This new project will feature Hans’ “Trio” for flute, oboe and clarinet, along with “Leys / Krachtlijnen” for solo flute and “Petite Pi├Ęce” for cello and piano, and Peter's Flute Sonata and a piece called "Dialogues" for flute, cello, piano, and narrator. This will be the 7th PARMA release featuring Hans’s music (also included on two of the FINE MUSIC series) and will be Peter's second project with PARMA.

Stay tuned for more news on the upcoming duo album, and in the meantime check out the newly released PINNACLE in Navona Records' catalog: http://www.navonarecords.com/catalog/nv6022/
