Clock Tower Records

There is one phrase that Rudens Turku uses repeatedly whenever he is discussing his work: "to sink into the note." The German-Albanian violinist employs it to underscore his principal concern, which is to feel his way into the deeper layers of a composition and at the same time to be aware of the story of it's composer's life and of the way in which that life is embedded in a particular period and it's political background. He finds an almost ideal opportunity to do this in the music of Astor Piazzolla- concert music by a cosmopolitan Argentine musician of Italian ancestry who grew up in the United States.
