Editorial Reviews

Czech singer/player/composer Iva Bittova has said. The violin is a mirror reflecting my dreams and imagination. I believe there are fundamentals to my performance, such as the musics vibration and resonance between the violin and my voice. That relationship is beautifully explored on this album recorded at Auditorio Radiotelevisione svizzera, Lugano, and produced by Manfred Eicher - which expresses the essence of Bittovas unique and extraordinary solo work.

These modestly-titled Fragments resist definition. An idiosyncratic folk music, contemporary composition, improvisation, any and all of these may apply from moment to moment. Bittovas music is a living, changing thing: Deciding on a name for my style of music is far from over yet. Iva Bittova was previously showcased in 2007 on the widely-acclaimed ECM album Mater by composer Vladimír Godar; this marks her solo debut for the label.

Format: Audio CD
This CD was actually recommended to me by a music librarian at my local library. At first, I wasn’t sure if I was going to like it, since the very opening of the disc sounded a bit like “New Age” music, but as it went along I really began to get into it. Bittová has a wonderful, unique style of both composition and performance that almost defies description. I say “almost” because it sounded to me like a combination of Eastern European folk music, Meredith Monk, classical, New Age and jazz. Yes, there are elements of all five in it, and the longer you listen to this CD the more Bittová’s singing and playing grows on you. Her violin style is much more rooted in folk music, but also contains some unusual percussive effects. Much, but not all, of the “New Age” sound stems from the engineering of the disc, which has a lot of ambience (something I’m generally against). The bottom line, however, is that if you like odd and unusual music that blurs categories, you’ll LOVE this CD.
