Saskia Griffiths-Moore & Chandra Chakraborty, ‘Together in Love and Separation’

Words By Joey Rochert.

The new piece that Chandra Chakraborty and Saskia Griffiths-Moore have created, entitled ‘Together in Love and Separation’ has us completely enthralled. This album is incredibly euphoric in every way imaginable, and the duo’s ability to combine western and Indian musical traditions into a single piece is truly remarkable.

@ Rupert Hitchcox.

Vocally, both of them fly with unparalleled assurance, and they captivate us with every movement of their timbre when they are performing. The new album brings a classical aura that derives mainly from the traditional music of India, but it also includes layers of current and nostalgic folk music from the west, which adds additional flair and excitement to the overall experience.

There are a total of eight tracks on the album, and every one of them contributes something novel to the music industry. Because of this, you will not want to miss them performing live on July 19 at Cecil Sharpe House in London alongside the renowned London Chamber Orchestra, which will be led by Úna Palliser.

With each new release, the composer, raised in Scotland, improves, and she reaches a higher level here while still stripping back her composition. The core emphasis of this track is a piano configuration. Even though there aren’t many other elements supporting it, it still stands out with bold character and viscerally expresses itself.

Anesthis, ‘Prayer’

Words By Joey Rochert.

‘Prayer,’ by Anesthis, is the oeuvre that sticks out from the start with its unique appeal. Anesthis, who has been honing his craft for many years, rises to the occasion with energy here, showcasing his innate aptitude for putting together a magnificent piece.


The winding path-filled composition leads us on an exciting voyage with a soundscape that keeps us clutching like a biker’s mitt. It’s impossible not to be at ease when listening to the piano’s arrangement. Also, Anesthis’ ability to control the structure and be versatile too is impressive.

Julia Thomsen And Tre, ‘Barcelona Summer’

Words By Joey Rochert.

Julia Thomsen and Tre’s latest release, ‘Barcelona Summer,’ is relishing the summer air. The song is the duo’s first collaboration, and it gives us a glimpse into their mindset.

It’s lovely, with a serene, timeless design. The peaceful vibe of the birds in the opener is also enough to relax our stressed modern heads. In addition, as the music progresses, a piano arrangement grips the ears to every note, transforming it into a gorgeous masterpiece.

Julia Thomsen

Julia Thomsen has a wealth of classical jewels under her belt, and she rarely collaborates with others. It does, however, pay off handsomely, giving her a new edge and allowing her to stand out even more in the competitive classical space. Tre also has a heavenly aspect that adds a lot of flavour to Julia’s music, and both composers sparkle with multicolour throughout the performance.

The piece is titled ‘Barcelona Summer,’ and it appears to be a reflection of the beautiful nature that surrounds the Spanish metropolis, as well as the summer vistas that surround us all. It’s a brilliant road that leads us away from our chair and into a lovely refuge.

It’s also likely to start many collaborations between the two composers, who evidently enjoyed working together on this piece. It’s a refreshing experience to hear two creative composers collaborate, and they don’t hold back in letting their personalities shine through as the work progresses.
