Die Kunst der Paraphrase swissmusic

In her 'Thoughts about Improvisation' Swiss-Bulgarian Pianist Galina Vracheva writes: "I try to recall an old tradition to new life by giving improvisation a major place during my concerts. In recitals I give the audience the possibility to give me suggestions on which I can improvise." This double CD contents musical paraphrases/improvisations on famous Swiss folk songs: Ds Vreneli ab em Guggisbärg, Niene geit's so schön u luschtig, Dorma bain, E mi som chi in barchetta, Le Ranz des Vaches, The Swiss National Anthem(s) a.o.
