Musicality, shared energy and a good dose of joy and honesty both as performers and in their relationship to music. These are just some of the qualities of the stable duo formed by trumpeter Mireia Farrés –considered one of the best in the world– and pianist Mercè Hervada, in whom the OBC soloist has discovered a remarkably skilled and generous performer as fellow traveller.
This recording, Temperaments (SEED010), represents a high point in their joint trajectory that began in 1999. It is presented as a veritable statement of intentions with the aim of celebrating a timbre that is still heard too rarely in concert halls and to provide a platform for the music for this chamber formation: original work, adaptations, and new work, i.e., commissions from composers of our own day.
Farrés and Hervada’s artistic project is grounded in an admirable track record, coming to fruition in an exciting present and with a future full of major challenges. With their feet firmly on the ground, these two rigorous performers invite you to plunge into various luminous and colourful works where their musical virtues shine to the full. All the listener needs to do now is to make the repertoire and format their own, and to settle back and enjoy the music in plenitude and serenity.
