Innova Recordings is dedicated to forward-looking (-hearing?) work that pushes and challenges the boundaries of contemporary music. The label’s releases are less dictated by record-bin-constraints or typical notions of marketability, but by the integrity of the work, its originality, conceptual richness and technical quality, and the artist’s willingness to support and promote the release.

Hans Witschi’s “New Work for violin, cello, and piano” (world premiere) commissioned by GFE, Yvonne Troxler’s “Brouhaha” for violin, cello and three glass bowls and Bruno Mantovani’s “8 Moments Musicaux for violin, cello and piano.” Matthusen’s “in Absentia” examines by way of sonic resonance ideas of memory, and how repetition of the facets of the remembered may eventually create its own patterns in absence of the thing remembered. Witschi’s new composition works with visual images and their transformation into sound. Troxler’s Brouhaha explores the sound qualities of strings and glass bowls played with mallets, ball bearings and other devices. “8 Moments Musicaux” by the famous young French composer Bruno Mantovani are virtuous contemplations on the possibilities of the three instruments.
