Album Notes
Composer Katarina Glowicka brings a modern interpretation of The Shakespeare's Sonnets in an original musical performance where the ancient combines with modern music, trends and technology. Taking inspiration from John Dowlnad’s gentle melodic lines, Glowicka matches this with original eclectic pulses in the string quartet together with crystal rhythmical motives using electronic counterpoints. The voice of the contratenors very high male tessitura gives the compositions a unique serenity of non-vibrato lines.

Shakespeare's Sonnets, published for the first time in 1609 were unmatched in its time as the perfection of the sonnet expressing itself on themes of love, beauty and morals with a strong sense of drama and passion inherent in Shakespeare’s words. From this collection three poems were chosen in 1999 and set to music by Glowicka. To this set four more poems have been selected in 2009 to complete a 50-minute song cycle.
