Hazel Leach & The Composers` Orchestra Berlin
Postcard Collection
Hazel Leach - leader

The Composers` Orchestra Berlin is an ensemble in which all musicians are as well their own `preparatory workers` as composers. Each piece surprises, tells stories and creates a genre crossing space in which most differents styles – classical European chamber music, improvised music and jazz, world music, pop or Neue Musik – unite. There is no fixed line-up: the composers have the opportunity to choose musicians out of the COB`s `pool`. This way a highly interesting space for experiments has been established opening up opportunities to combine styles of whatever kind. For her COB project "Postcard Collection" conductor Hazel Leach has `collected` elements of waltzes, a great collection of musical ideas from very different corners of the world – all based on the variations of the scheme of three-four time. The release includes seven of these `postcards` inspired by music from Venezuela, Peru, Argentine, Greece, Great Britain and Germany – all individually arranged and orchestrated for the COB`s members.www.hazelleach.com
