With their new album “Manu Scriptum” (from Latin: written by hand), Spanish hornist Adrián Díaz Martínez – professor of horn at the Musikhochschule Lübeck since 2021 – and his Japanese piano partner Ikuko Odai once again present an exciting concept album.

The album is inspired by the composers’ manuscripts and their first sketches and ideas for their works. “Interpreting such first musical ideas” – writes Díaz Martínez – “is a particularly exciting task, because in this way you trace the original idea of these sounds.”

Adrián Díaz Martínez was particularly inspired by a movement by Robert Schumann – represented on the album by the original version of his Adagio and Allegro op. 70 for horn and piano: “The first conception is always the most natural and best. The mind errs, the feeling does not.”

In order to get as close as possible to this first stage in the creation of music, Ikuko Odai and Adrián Díaz Martínez embarked on a long and intensive search for information about manuscripts, old letters, books and materials often kept in secret drawers: “It was a fantastic journey. And also proved to be a wonderful gift to discover how the selected composers – Charles Gounod, Robert Schumann, Richard Strauss and Volker David Kirchner – thought, what and how they dreamed, loved and lived,” says Díaz Martínez.
