World premiere recordings are brought together on this new GENUIN CD featuring works by the composer Christian Ridil: Renowned musicians from the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, among others, play in formations ranging from brass quintet to flute and percussion to the exquisite combination of chromatic harmonica and harpsichord. The works of the Goethe University Frankfurt‘s former university music director are characterized by stylistic diversity, wit, charm, and virtuosity and yet bear Ridil's clear signature. Absolutely worth discovering!

"A CD of selected chamber music has now been released, expanding Ridil's discography worthwhile for any listener who wants to get an impression of his style: contemporary in tone, but not avant-garde, fond of grotesque, witty, mostly rhythmically refined, often dance-like, perfect in craftsmanship and form."
Portrait on Christian Ridil by Guido Holze in the FAZ of September 1, 2021

On June 21, 2021, the CD was presented in the program Treffpunkt Klassik.
