The composers Maia Cabeza unites on her debut CD come from the Czech Republic, Hungary and Romania. She traces the musical traditions that flowed into the compositions of the 1920s and 1930s by Janáček, Veress, Holliger, Enescu, Schulhoff and Bartók. The exception in this picture is Heinz Holliger's sparkling Spring Dance of 2001: a very unique approach to the musical heritage of his native Switzerland. The Canadian-American violinist Maia Cabeza, winner of the 2018 Johann Sebastian Bach Competition, together with Zoltán Fejérvári on the piano, makes these different influences delicately audible.

Nominated for the PDSK
Maia Cabeza enthuses the trade press with her debut CD "Folk Roots" and is now nominated for the German Record Critics' Prize in the chamber music category.
