About this album

Hora Sentimental, the title of the 2nd CD by the Charivari trio, is a good example of the musical philosophy of violinist Anneke Frankenberg, accordionist Bart Lelivelt, and singer-bassist Gerard Schoren. An original composition, in the style of a Rumanian hora. is given a sentimental tint that would not be inappropriate to an Argentinian tango singer. Natives of a small land in a big world, this Netherlands triumvirate is familial with the musical riches of a multicultural society. Following in the wake of the gypsies, the musicians of the Charivari trio integrate folk music, in particular from Eastern Europe and South America, into their own background. New compositions are written in old styles, significant experiments are made with authentic music, and traditional forms are plowed up and sown with the seeds of varia- tions. With the Charivari trio, nothing remains as it was, but rather all of the music is exposed to new traditions. Eastern Europe, for example, was chosen as the point of departure for this CD. but the trio were not afraid of a few vacation trips to South America on the way.
