Dissonance: Žuraj – Lebič – Mozart

This album was released last year at the ZKP RTV Slovenija record label and is characterized by an interesting and quite unusual choice of the repertoire, performed by the string quartet called Dissonance.
All three compositions on the album – Scratch by Vito Žuraj, Lojze Lebič's String Quartet and Mozart's String Quartet no. 19 in C major, KV 465, demonstrate the identity and the essence of this ensemble, whose aim is to perform compelling contemporary works by Slovenian composers and classical masterpieces. Lojze Lebič's String Quartet acts as a central piece, and since its performance is of such a high quality, we can say that this Lebič's modernist creation is also the most fascinating and substantial piece on the record.
The album itself denotes an interesting reflection on dissonance. Dissonant harmonies can be experienced through the entire colourful pallet of aesthetic movements in the history of music.
