Annotations by musicologist Janis Kudins and Baiba Kaugars. This CD encompasses chamber music by eleven Latvian composers, past and present, from around the world. The idea for such a compilation occurred to flutist Ilona Kudina several years ago, after she had worked a number of stylistically striking compositions for the flute by Latvian composers living abroad into her repertoire, as she felt that they merited the attention of a wider audience. On the Bridge presents works created by several generations of Latvian composers while residing outside Latvia and reflects a range of esthetic orientations and traditions. Janis Medins (1890-1966) and Helmers Pavasars (1903-1998) developed their creative careers in Latvia during the 1920s and '30s. At the end of World War II, along with many other members of the Latvian intelligentsia, they went into exile in the West, where thousands of East European refugees were housed in displaced persons camps in Germany before resettlement to other countries. From 1948 until his death, Janis Medins lived in Sweden, Helmers Pavasars made Great Britain his residence after 1954. Connections to classically romantic musical traditions are felt clearly in the works of both. Medins' Rhapsody for Flute and Piano written in 1945 in Germany, is dedicated to fellow composer and flutist Arnolds Sturms. In this free-form piece, he adroitly incorporates half a dozen Latvian folksong melodies. The intricate exposition of material in Pavasars' Duo for Flute and Violin, dated 1967, attests to the good taste and clarity of musical expressions that permeate his work. Differing styles, more resonant of various 20th century musical innovations, are evident in the works of three other Latvian composers of the older generation- Arnolds Sturms (1912-1999), Alberts Jerums (1919-1978), and Talivaldis Kenins (1919). Residing in the USA from 1949, composer, flutist, commentator, and Latvian cultural activist Arnolds Sturms explored both traditional values and 20th century musical language, including modality and dodecaphony. This multifaceted approach is used in Suite Modale fro Flute and String Quintet. Initially written for flute and piano in 1966, the suite was reworked in 1989 for this instrumental grouping. It intrigues especially with it's imagistic finesse and nuance. Alberts Jerums settled in Great Britain in 1947, always responding with interest to new elements arising in music at that time. Not for naught Talivaldis Kenins called Jerums 'the first Latvian 20th-century composer"- it is not just a respectful, complimentary formality. Music for flute, voice and violin, with lyrics by Ilze Rasa, portrays a romantically elevated ideal. As the composer himself has noted, the section titles express the gamut of rich feelings and moods which, through a synthesis of compositional techniques, brilliantly create a musical tapestry. Along with Sturms and Jerums, Talivaldis Kenins is presently one of the best-known Latvian musical grandmasters. Though closely associated with the musical culture and traditions of Canada, where he settled in 1951, Kenins is undeniably also a Latvian composer, one of those who from the mid-20th century has devoted himself to mastering various styles and trends. These interests were furthered by exposure to French culture at the Paris Conservatory (1945-1950), where he studied with Olivier Messiaen and graduated with "Grand Prix Laureate" in composition, earning a post-graduate scholarship from the UNESCO International Music Council. After immigration to Canada, Kenins began teaching at the University of Toronto, where he is presently a professor. Author of numerous symphonies, as well as works in other genres, he is a fascinating personality and engaging participant in the music world, whose music excites with it's refinement and richness of palette. In his 1967 Fantasy-Variations on an Eskimo Lullaby for flute and viola, the composer utilizes a North American Eskimo folk melody colored by ancient pentatonic tonality, revealed through the flowing music in variously evocative moods and si
