Album Notes
After many years of touring almost exclusively as a solo artist, Petar Jankovic entered the world of chamber music in 2009 with an original and exciting classical crossover combination: guitar and string quartet. The guitar’s Spanish and Latin American tradition, blended with the string quartet’s classical European origin creates a concert experience that is a creative infusion of musical styles. PJE’s music is expressive and idiomatic in both new repertoire and arrangements of traditional music.

PJE’s concerts are well-received by a wide spectrum of listeners, from chamber music aficionados to new music lovers to guitar fans. In 2011, PJE released their first album titled “From Spain to Tango”, which brought the classical string quartet into the vivid world of the guitar. With the current release, PJE turns to the other side of its heritage, bringing its singular timbre to diverse and celebrated works of the classical European tradition.

About the works

"(Com)Passionate Music includes two contrasting movements: I. Passionate is very energetic and powerful, and II. Compassionate is vulnerable and warm. Passion, the zeal within you, makes you move forward; and compassion, the heart for others, compels you to reach out. Passion and compassion together seem more effective than one without the other.” - Elliott Bark

Shostakovich’s 24 Preludes and Fugues, Op. 87 is a monumental work originally written for solo piano. Inspired by J.S. Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier, the full piece is over two and a half hours long and cycles through all 24 major and minor keys. Each key contains a prelude and a fugue in contrasting style. The three selected for this recording are Prelude and Fugue No. 1 in C Major, No. 5 in D Major, and No. 24 in D Minor.

Debussy’s six-movement suite Children’s Corner was written for solo piano and was dedicated to his daughter Claude-Emma who was three years old at the time of composition. It was not intended to be performed by children, but is rather an adult’s nostalgic reminiscence of childhood which features several children’s toys brought to life musically. It was published in 1908 and in 1911 the work was arranged for an orchestra by Debussy's good friend André Caplet.
