"The idea was to find works with content that we deeply related to. Throughout different periods, one could find compositions that reflected the uncertainty floating around our existence, in other words, the joy of life and the fear of death. When we think about the Prelude Op. 28, No.4, by Frederic Chopin, which he wanted played at his funeral, just as was the case for Mozart and his Requiem, we have a good idea of the existential depth the composer was trying to convey through his music. The music of the CD Adagio: A Consideration of a Serious Matter lies exactly where real questions begin..." - Matthias Maute
