Whispers of Tradition - Reinventions of Bach, Vivaldi, Purcell et al. / Volbers
Musicians in the Baroque period had to reinvent themselves time and again: their repertoire was not fixed. Instead, they improvised, adapted, and transcribed - something that was not seen as theft, but rather as an act of high virtue and ingenuity! Recorder player Max Volbers, the winner of the 2021 German Music Competition, revives this tradition on his solo debut album with GENUIN: he gathers top-class musicians around him for the recording of his own arrangements, paraphrases, and pastiches of works by Bach, Monteverdi, and Vivaldi. Works that are partly familiar to us, but which we have never heard before in this form - full of soul, inspired, and knowledgeably performed!
