"Wergo presents first recordings of chamber music works by the Israeli composer Chaya Czernowin. The eponymous series of works, Shifting Gravity, from 2008 connects the string quartets 'Anea Christal' with the compositions 'Sheva' and 'Sahaf.' The second part of the CD consists of the 'Winter Songs III' (2003). This Wergo production shows a different side of the artist who was born in Haifa in 1957 and who, up to now, has been appreciated mainly for her stage works, in particular for the much noticed music theatre play Pnima/Ins Innere or her adaptation of Mozart's 'Zaide/Adama.' The instrumental works were all created after the music-theatre plays, associating notions like paralysis, adherence, proliferation."
