Greek pianist and composer Tania Giannouli follows her Rattle debut, Forest Stories (2012), with a very different recording from the newly formed Tania Giannouli Ensemble. With influences as diverse as Greek folk music, contemporary classical, modern jazz, world music and European avant-garde, Transcendence is an intoxicating, musically literate tour-de-force. These richly textured, beautifully balanced compositions are performed with great rigour, lyricism and passion, but above all they are strikingly honest and direct.

"Neither 'landscape' nor 'new age' music (and if we suppose this album to be 'light jazz' we are very wrong), Transcendence is in fact a metaphor. Composer Tania Giannouli has responded to the plight or her noble country through music. As reflected in the undulating waves in the video for 'The Sea', Giannouli’s music offers a powerful allegory that not only speaks to the lesson of civic stature Greece gifted to the world, but also of the excesses of power shown by Europe, which, in its shameless arrogance, would prepare yet another note of debt to be sent to Athens –– even as the sound of this music rings in their ears! One can hear a breeze blowing in Transcendence that has all but eradicated 'civility' from European dictionaries." --Ricardo Salo
