radiofan Es ist Traummusik welche Ingrid Laubrock geschrieben hat. Aus Ihren Texten entstand Musik, die von 2 Ensembles gespielt wird. Wir hören also jeden Titel in 2 Varianten. Ich habe lange nichts Besseres gehört. Ingrid Laubrock schreibt Musik, die für mich den ganzen Wahnsinn von heute widerspiegelt. Respekt an Intakt Records, die so ein Projekt unterstützen und veröffentlichen. Die CD des Jahres. Nicht mehr und nicht weniger. Favorite track: Twice Dreamt.

Intakt CD 355 (2 CDs)

The album Dreamt Twice, Twice Dreamt follows Ingrid Laubrock's landmark orchestral album Contemporary Chaos Practices from 2018 (Intakt CD 314). Ingrid Laubrock presents on this double album five compositions in double version. On the first CD, the EOS Chamber Orchestra Cologne interprets Laubrock's compositions. The soloists are Cory Smythe (piano), Sam Pluta (electronics), Robert Landfermann (bass), Tom Rainey (drums) and Ingrid Laubrock (saxophone). On a second CD of the double album a filigree ensemble around the core trio of Ingrid Laubrock, Cory Smythe, Sam Pluta and the guests Adam Matlock, Josh Modney and Zeena Parkins play the same five compositions. The two CDs of Laubrock's works contrast, diverge and complement each other. Ingrid Laubrock writes: “While the small-group versions were composed first, I did not just re-arrange those compositions for the orchestra but rather re-imagined them. As I wrote the large-scale pieces, I often zoomed-in on a detail in a small-group version to generate a materially different large-group piece.” As a whole, the two CDs paint fascinating musical panoramas, inspired by the composer's dream worlds, characterized by Laubrock's ability to compose and the individual colors and shades of the soloists.
