John Cage: Harmonies / Girolamo Frescobaldi: Canzoni
Order number: WER 66552
including VAT and plus delivery
In his "Harmonies", John Cage (1912-1992) used 18th-century church music as a model to create with them, by omitting some tones, calm, clear 20th-century music. Complementary to that, one can hear the six virtuoso "Canzoni" by Girolamo Frescobaldi (1583-1643). The CD unites music, the common vocal features of which can be called more than "ear-catching" (Canzoni, Anthems). Frescobaldi's look ahead, Cage's look back, both touching each other in the visionary.
The interpreters Stefan Hussong (accordion) and Mike Svoboda (trombone) appreciate the free instrumentation of the works in order to enjoy the tonally interesting kinship of their two "wind instruments". A harmonic sensuous recording which will not only appeal to experts and lovers of early or modern music. - Get enchanted by this new and original combination!
