Album Notes
The ensemble To be Sung is formed by Elisa Roep - soprano, Eva van de Poll - violoncello and Fie Schouten - clarinets. In 2001 they started their very own journey for mostly contemporary repertoire in which the warm and expressive sound of their lyrical instruments could melt together, creating the unique sounding performances they are known for. Besides performing established pieces, the trio plays especially commissioned music composed with their exceptional instrumental combination in mind.

For their latest project 'Amsterdam, de Wereld', To be Sung invited seven composers with a physical connection to the metropolis that is Amsterdam. With their diverse backgrounds (classical/ jazz/ improvisation and world music) they composed new pieces that, just like the city itself, are infused with influences from cultures far-away and closer to home, bringing a wonderfully eclectic mix of musical styles.
In Levelt you feel sweeping Balkan rhythm, Wullur disarms with Indonesian children’s songs. Haiku wisdom is revealed in Visser and a yet secret love between Sahin’s parents in Turkey is soaring. Magic resounds in Ornstein and in the hidden code of Klein. Van Veenendaal describes a walk of precisely 711 steps through the neighbourhood and childhood simultaneously.
