Background

"Ceremony" explores the field of tension between old and new music, and between composition and improvisation, and shows the way in which phrasing, textures and colours employed in one area can impact upon another. The album introduces Maya Homburger, baroque violin specialist, to the New Series and reintroduces Barry Guy as composer and interpreter. The Swiss-born violinist and the English bassist have worked together in many different contexts over the years, but "Ceremony", featuring music by Biber and Barry Guy, marks their recorded debut as a duo.
