WERGO Releases Debut Recording of Chaya Czernowin's HIDDEN

WERGO Releases Debut Recording of Chaya Czernowin's <em>HIDDEN</em>

The first commercial recording of Chaya Czernowin’s monumental work for string quartet and electronics, HIDDEN, is released on November 24 by WERGO. The recording features the JACK Quartet, for whom the work was written, along with IRCAM engineers Carlo Laurenzi and Jérémie Henrot. The album also includes a recording of Czernowin’s recent work for solo voice, Adiantum Capillus-Veneris: Etudes in Fragility, performed by mezzo-soprano Inbal Hever.

Czernowin describes HIDDEN as “a very slow moving, 45-minute experience, which transforms the ear into an eye.” The work is a striking aural landscape that offers a unique opportunity for sonic observation and perceptual exploration. The US premiere of HIDDEN at the ICA in Boston was chosen as one of the “Best 10 Musical Events of 2016” by Steve Smith in the Log Journal and featured as a “current obsession” by Alex Ross on WQXR.

Listen to the recent album Chaya Czernowin: Wintersongs from Kairos Records featuring Czernowin’s series of Wintersongs for chamber ensemble:
