J.S. Bach: Partita & Concertos / Halubek, Il Gusto Barocco
Introducing Il Gusto Barocco's latest album, a new approach to Baroque music. Each ensemble member is given a platform to showcase their talents as a soloist, choosing their own program and interpreting the selected works in a very special way. Director Jörg Halubek believes in the concept of "extended chamber music," where players must always think and perform as soloists while still valuing the importance of ensemble playing.
The members of Il Gusto Barocco all studied at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis, which has led to a shared aesthetic background. The ensemble's goal is to bring the music to life and not impose their own personal listening habits on the audience. Flautist Claire Genewein performs Johann Sebastian Bach's Flute Partita in A minor on the album, playing it without bass accompaniment, as Bach most likely intended. This recording offers a unique interpretation, especially regarding playing speeds, that sets it apart from others. Il Gusto Barocco's latest album is a must-listen for fans of Baroque music looking for a fresh take on the genre.
