Album Notes
The sounds of timber are amazing. The recorder can be used as a clap stick and a whistle (as in track 8), the cello like a drum (as in track 20 & 21). In “Arabia Nocturna” the cello sounds like 2 cellos and in “Didgeridoo” both the bass recorder and the cello melt together as one instrument, the Australian Didgeridoo.
In the Handel Sonata track 2-5) the cello is tuned down to the Baroque pitch, producing a softer and richer sound.
The three instruments - the recorder, or actually lots of them, the guitar and the cello - are made of a combination of hard and soft woods. Exquisite sounds in so many characters join together by being blown, plucked, bowed. Amazing.

On the web page "sheetmusic" of the linked website you find the score of the 'Multicultural Suite'.

Jodie Goldney and Georg played first concerts together in 1992. These concerts seemed to have been a surprise experience for the audience.They asked numerous times during the next decade when the Duo would perform next time - which was impossible because of the distance they lived apart. As soon as Jodie and Georg lived closer together they decided to perform together again.

Jodie was born in Bathurst (Australia), did her diploma at the age of 16, followed by a master degree of recorder at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music.
German born Georg Mertens is a virtuoso of cello and guitar, trained at the prestigious Staatliche Hochschule fuer Musik in Freiburg / Germany. He has performed hundreds of solo concerts across Europe and Australia (see also his CD's for guitar and cello solo).

Georg Mertens published recently his ground breaking systematic analysis of bow technique (can be viewed at the linked website)
