[…] Eleni Keventsidou is a very interesting musician. Her interpretation is really delicate and pure. The most significant parts of her program were Reger’s works. The series of twelve religious songs “Bitte um einen seligen Tod” was greatly performed with clear and various colours. […] In Reger’s work “Improvisation, Allegro con brio” Eleni Keventsidou discovered the composer’s typical spasm, as well as his most sensitive aspects, “constructing” a very impressive performance. […]

[…] Nikos Spanatis has a crystal countertenor voice, which he handles with flexibility, power and wide shades. For example, the song of the Scottish Poem “My Heart’s in the Highlands” by Arvo Pärt was an excellent example of using different sound colours and a high voice technique. […]

Ibrahim Aziz villa da gamba

"Ibrahim Aziz, viola da gamba
Ibrahim Aziz was born in Malaysia and began music lessons when he was eight. In 1999 he went to Trinity College of Music London to study the viola da gamba under Alison Crum. During his studies he was also privately taught by Sarah Cunningham, and attended various master classes in the UK and Europe given by Jordi Savall and Wieland Kuijken. He is the recipient of many awards and prizes: while at Trinity he became the first winner of their Early Music Prize, and was the first person in the college’s history to win its prestigious Gold Medal on a period instrument over all other mainstream instrumentalists. Mr Aziz now divides his time performing and teaching. He plays with a number of period groups and ensembles in the UK and abroad, most notably Sestina Consort, Charivari Agreable and The Maresienne Consort, with whom he has recorded for Signum Classics. He is a member of the internationally acclaimed Rose Consort Consort of Viols. As a young player he recently helped found ‘Chelys’, a young professional viol consort based in the UK. Mr Aziz is the viol tutor at Morley College, London, and regularly teaches at The Dartington International Summer School, The Benslow Early Music Courses, The Ascot (and Irish) Early Music Courses, among others. Recent engagements include appearances in concerts at the City of London Festival, The York Early Music Festival, Italy, Ireland and on BBC Radio 3's In Tune with Sean Rafferty. Forthcoming events include performances in Switzerland, at the Brighton Festival, Greenwich International Early Music Festival, The Snape Maltings concert hall in Aldeburgh, and a broadcast on the Early Music Show on BBC Radio 3 with The Rose Consort of Viols. Mr. Aziz plays a seven-string bass viola da gamba by Jane Julier after Nicholas Bertrand, and a treble viola da gamba by Kazuya Sato. " Visit website for more information. (ed.)
