The novel Lux Nova Duo is already releasing its third CD with GENUIN. Lydia Schmidl, accordion, and Jorge Paz Verastegui, guitar, are joined this time by the Württemberg Chamber Orchestra under the direction of Eddie Mora and the soprano Marcia Lemke-Kern. The track list offers an exciting program comprised exclusively of world premiere recordings – all dedicated to the Duo Lux Nova, including works by guitar alto master Leo Brouwer as well as Sascha Lino Lemke, Eddie Mora, and Hector Docx. The CD's color palette is vast, ranging from Brouwer's Latin American colors to Mora's eclectic take on György Ligeti and Lemke's variations on the human breath to Hector Docx's Transfigurations, which plumbs the depths of silence.

American Record Guide

Der Kultur Blog
"Gemeinsam mit dem wunderbaren Württembergischen Kammerorchester Heilbronn gelingen dem Lux Nova Duo auf seinem exquisiten Album „Transcend“ virtuos interpretierte, intensive, klangvolle und melodische Momente. Ein Must-have, nicht nur für Klassikfans." Review from June 2, 2023

"[...] a fascinating journey of sound exploration. [...] In the intimate instrumentation of guitar and accordion, Brouwer's sound world comes into its own in a special way." Review from 3 November 2022

Musik an sich
"Eine voltenreiche Mischung zwischen großer Geste und Scherzo, Klangexperiment und Traditionsbezug also. Dabei stiftet Lux Nova Duo das klangliche Leitmotiv und bietet zusammen mit dem WKO spieltechnisch ausgefeilte sowie musikalisch stimmige Wiedergaben. Das Ganze wurde auch tonmeisterlich kontrast- und detailreich eingefangen." Review by Georg Henkel

Online Merker
"Das technische und musikalische Niveau der Aufnahme ist beachtlich. Dies gilt vor allem für die dynamische Balance und die bewegenden klanglichen Kontraste. Geballte und magische Klangwolken des Akkordeons hüllen den Hörer in sphärenhafter Weise ein." Read the whole review by Alexander Walther here on the website of Online Merker.
