Award-winning recording artist, Iwona Glinka's new album GIMEL, consists of ten compositions, written by ten contemporary composers: Aaron Alter, Greg Bartholomew (USA), Louis Sauter (France), Christos Sp. Anastassiou, Spiros Mazis, Yiola Voutsina-Papagiannidi, Elena Papari, Dimitris Tsimpanos, Yiorgos Vassilandonakis and Gerassimos Voutsinas (Greece). In each case, they are world premieres, recorded by soloists specializing in the performance of contemporary music: Iwona Glinka (flute), Leszek Lorent (vibraphone) and Adam Eljasinski (clarinet). Six of the pieces were composed for flute and vibraphone, while the remaining ones are for solo flute, alto flute, bass flute and piccolo, and for flute and clarinet.
The album was recorded in September 2017 in Warsaw, and is the culmination of work on compositions, often dedicated to the Polish flutist Iwona Glinka, who devoted the subject of contemporary flute music in her two doctoral dissertations.
The DALETH album is another achievement of the outstanding Polish flutist. Dr. Glinka performs contemporary works on the flute , perfectly reflecting the atmosphere of today in society, in the intellectual as well as in the artistic sense. DALETH is the continuation of the ALEPH (Sarton), BETH (Sarton) and GIMEL (Phasma Music) albums and is a harbinger of the artist's subsequent albums following the order of the Phoenician alphabet.
