Executive Producers: Diane and Craig Martin

Symmetria Pario: Creation

Yarlung executive producers Craig and Diane Martin have generously shepherded some of Yarlung’s finest vinyl pressings and I hope you will agree this is no exception.

Diane and Craig and the musicians and I thank Russell Ward for his initial support of this project, including underwriting of the commissions for the three pieces included in this vinyl pressing.

Symmetria Pario Creation explores the “beginnings of things,” the origin of the universe as expressed in music, and various creation stories from different cultures around the world.

BUT when listening to this album one does not need to know anything about science or even the inspiration behind these works to enjoy the music.  Clarice’s work proves this instantly upon hearing the first moments of our opening track.

Clarice Assad investigates quantum theory and what we surmise happened in the first billionths of a second after the universe came into being.

Yuko Mabuchi explores a Yoruba creation story from West Africa and incorporates Native American creation traditions.

Ricky Kej explores pre-Hindu Vedic narratives from Ancient India.

Just as we pondered our origins 50 or 100,000 years ago, we want to know how it all began, whether through a magnanimous creative act of divine power or by spontaneous eruption from a single point into an ever-expanding universe bursting outward at many times the speed of light.

Pekka Kuusisto performs not only as a violin soloist with the major orchestras on the planet, but conducts regularly with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, San Francisco Symphony, Philharmonia Orchestra and Helsinki Philharmonic, where he is Principal Guest Conductor, as well as Mahler Chamber Orchestra and many elite ensembles around the world. Pekka plays the 1709 “Scotta” Stradivarius. See more information about Mr. Kuusisto.

Joonas Ahonen specialises in contemporary music from his home-base in Vienna, but also records Beethoven and Mendelssohn on fortepiano.

See more information about Mr. Ahonen.

Our repertoire on this 180 Gram 45RPM pressing includes:

  1. Symmetries (Clarice Assad)
  2. Evolution of the One (Yuko Mabuchi)
  3. Arambhah (Ricky Kej)

–Bob Attiyeh, producer
