DuH (Gratkowski / Mezei / Markos / Blume): in just (Red Toucan)
Label: Red Toucan    
Released in: Canada    

"In the spring of 2010, I was asked to form a project for the Festival "Scene Ungarn in NRW"

(Nordrhein-Westfalen - NRW is my home country in Germany)

This was a great opportunity to contact again the hungarian cellist Albert Márkos with whom I played together only once at a Music Symposium in Copenhagen 15 years ago.

NRW (and Berlin) based reed player Frank Gratkowski, with whom I`m working regularly since end of the 80s (recently also in our actual group SHIFT), was the first choice for the NRW part of the group.

Albert proposed right away the violist Szilárd Mezei with whom he collaborates in many other projects.

The Quartet played 5 concerts and immediately the chemistry and musical communication of the group worked perfect, which made us decide to continue working as a steady group which we call DuH: D for Germany and H for Hungary. This recording is a documentation of our first concert."-Martin Blume
