Duo Ahlert & Schwab “Music for Mandolin and Guitar” NAXOS Mandolinist Daniel Ahlert and guitarist Birgit Schwab have performed together for 20 years and their repertoire spans more than four centuries. This current recording has the duo playing out along the experimental edge of modern music, featuring works by seven contemporary American composers. The results, while probably not for every taste, are as consistently interesting and different as music can get. Some of it is achingly beautiful, alternately joyous and melancholy, vigorous and dream-like. Other pieces (or parts of pieces) are so arhythmic and anti-tonal that they verge on becoming unlistenable. Welcome to modern music. De gustibus non est disputandum. Recorded with their usual technical expertise, Duo Ahlert & Schwab’s “Music for Mandolin and Guitar” may not make everyone’s top 10 list, but when artists this brilliant perform any kind of music, baroque or 12 tone, that music deserves to be listened to.
