EDITORS’ NOTES

New Yorker Nadia Sirota is an inventive, dynamic viola player whose collaborators have included contemporary classical composer Nico Muhly and indie-rock heavyweights Arcade Fire. Here, alongside viol player Liam Byrne, she lends her wonderfully expressive playing to this striking album of music by Irish composer Donnacha Dennehy. Tessellatum is a meeting of ancient and modern, man-made and natural, precision and flux. Multitracked by the two players, and employing different kinds of tuning, the music conjures up images of enormous richness and texture. This is an album that will haunt you with its gentle beauty.
