In November 2021, violinist Baiba Skride joined longtime collaborator cellist Harriet Krjigh, and violist Ivan Vukčević at the famous EMIL Berliner Studios in Berlin to record an Album of Chamber Music by Melbourne-based Australian composer Lee Bradshaw.
The recording is produced by Lukas Kowalski.
Navona Records and Australian composer Lee Bradshaw present THE TIES THAT BIND, a collection of chamber music for strings that reveal an explicit and emotionally-charged truth. Brought to life by Baiba Skride (violin), Ivan Vukčević (viola), and Harriet Krijgh (violoncello), the album features works that redefine the expressive possibilities of contemporary string playing; and in which the performers are compelled to delve deeply into their own artistry.
Bradshaw’s sensuous and yet muscular compositional style displays a profound intimacy for his craft, which ultimately renders music of a rare and arresting beauty.
