Like Jack Kerouac, when he took to the American road, on the legendary Route 66, this Mirare cd hosts a programme as a specific musical path through the United States geographically and musically, "East of my youth, west of my future" (Kerouac).

Shani Diluka has made some new discoveries: Amy Beach, composer of genius; Percy Grainger, who became American by vocation; a world premiere by Hyung-ki Joo, whose 'Chandeliers' was composed in New York after September 11; the hypnotic meditations of John Adams, John Cage and Philip Glass; the South American-influenced Bernstein, Copland and Ginastera; and the intimate link between Gershwin and jazz that inspired Bill Evans or Keith Jarrett. To conclude this journey, Natalie Dessay gives us her unique presence in a new arrangement of Cole Porter composed especially for this disc by Raphael Merlin of the Ebene Quartet.

****

“Diluka's deft elegant playing displays equal affinity with all styles and approaches.”

MusicWeb International

25th March 2014

“Shani Diluka’s eclectic new recital of American music is addictively good … John Adams’ meditative China Gates has never been played better … Diluka’s playing is consistently - I wish there were a more descriptive word - flawless. Exquisite.”
