Cantilena

Cantilena

In the May 2020 edition of The Strad, German violist Tabea Zimmermann talks about Cantilena, her new album of Spanish and Latin music recorded with pianist Javier Perianes. Released on Harmonia Mundi, the recording features Zimmermann’s versatile viola snaking round the tangos of Piazzolla and Albéniz, the canciones of Falla and Villa-Lobos’s ‘Ária’. ‘It’s all about song,’ says Zimmermann. ‘I sing every phrase before I play it. It forms my imagination, and then I can reproduce it on the instrument.’
