Keenly anticipated follow-up to the beguiling and commercially successful Chants, Hymns and Dances album. Chants, Hymns and Dances with its striking juxtaposition of music by G.I.Gurdjieff and Tsabropoulos landed on classical charts around the world - and was for a time a Top 10 disc at amazon.com. Melos again features Tsabropoulos and Gurdjieff compositions, but reverses the ratio, with more Tsabropoulos to be heard, in an arc of material that incorporates three clearly-etched Gurdjieff tunes. Each piece on Melos is melodically-direct but also offers perspectives for expressive playing. Anja Lechner's profile has grown over the last years, most notably thanks to her recent album and touring with Dino Saluzzi. Their collaboration Ojos Negros was a 5 Star Album of the Year 2007 in Down Beat. Melos has a genre-crossing appeal to lovers of classical, world and jazz.
