Rohan de Saram was a member of the legendary Arditti Quartet for over twenty years and has performed as a soloist with a laundry list of major international orchestras. Preethi de Silva is the director of the celebrated US early music ensemble Con Gioia. A multi-award winner for her performances and literature, de Silva has performed with many internationally-famous period instrument musicians including Chiara Banchini, Monica Huggett and Wieland Kuijken. Harmonic Labyrinth, a special collection from First Hand, celebrates these two great Sri Lankan musicians and features repertoire from their recent, highly acclaimed concert tour with Con Gioia.
“…de Saram handles the music with absolute certainty and assurance… De Saram has done a wonderful job in transcribing the music [Locatelli], and performs it with a flourish… Her rendition of the theme is beautiful, stately, and sombe… The two artists are clearly talented musicians, and one can only hope they will continue to collaborate.” (All Music Guide ****)
