About Anja Lechner

German cellist Anja Lechner has been an important proponent of cross-genre musical experimentation, especially in relation to tango music. As a rising young cellist, Lechner won the Förder Prize of the City of Munich in 1990, and in 1992 she co-founded the Rosamunde Quartet, which recorded mainstream works by Haydn and Shostakovich, but also essayed music by Valentin Silvestrov. These recordings brought Lechner to the attention of the experimentally oriented classical/jazz label ECM. She had already made her recording debut in 1998 with Tango Gift. Many of Lechner's releases have been as part of chamber groups, performing either contemporary music or tango. ~ James Manheim
