UMBRATONO is the result of the project "Contemporary Bach" by the clarinetist Antonio Rosales and recorder player Sylvia Hinz. The name of the ensemble refers to the color umbra (umber) of the earth which we want to express in sounds. The term Umbra also refers to the shadow when an object blocks the direct sunlight. The music of UMBRATONO draws upon the music that remains darkened out of the glow of contemporary or early music, but expects to shine out in sounds to the audience. The early and contemporary music have this duality that UMBRATONO wants to express on stage.
