Description: Kapustin’s music is renowned in contemporary circles for its witty and seamless fusion of jazz idioms and formal classical structures. In recent years, the composer has forged a formidable association with American flautist Davis, who here interprets his highly sophisticated sonata with great virtuosity. Divertissement explores the different jazz harmonies available from the four instruments, contrasting with the textural transparency of A Little Duo. Immanuel Davis (flute), Adam Kuenzel (second flute), Pitnarry Shin (cello), Käthe Jarka (cello), Timothy Lovelace (piano).
