Early Music

The idea for this LP is very old, both in my head and in our world, that, in baroque Europe, was characterised by a quest. A quest for the emotions and feelings that turn our lives into an existence worth living. On this LP I follow the same idea. Germany and France, the two most important protagonists of my travels, were, in the Baroque epoch, two systems, even two emotional worlds, that could not have been more different. This manifested itself most apparently in the political systems: France had, as a result of the history of Louis XIV, been shaped by centalisation, whereas the German system bore more similarity to ancient Greece with its world of city-states.
The Viola da Gamba, and more specifically the music for this instrument, demonstrates the polarity of these two worlds in a special way. With its wealth of nuances, it opens up intimate aspects and emotional worlds of the Baroque era and tells musical stories that portray an intensive, fascinating picture.
A solo concert with the title “Pathways to music for the Viola da Gamba – from France to Germany“, that I played at the Innsbruck Music Festival (Austria), inspired me to make this recording. I wish the listener a pleasant musical journey.
