Early Baroque Music meets Mediterranian Traditional Songs
Greek, Sephardic, Calabrian, Lebanese, Turkish, Apulian, Portuguese, Armenian traditional and improvised music
The Mediterranean region as a cultural melting pot: along with baroque music by Cavalli, Grandi and Rossi, traditional Sephardic music, songs from Italy, Greece, Turkey, Lebanon and Armenia as well as Portuguese Fado are performed. The viola da gamba as the instrument of the finest sensitivity is grounded here by traditional music of the Mediterranean: Friederike Heumann and the Turkish singer Nihan Devecioglu explore together with the Catalan lutenist Xavier Díaz-Latorre new means of expression of Mediterranean soundscapes - as sensual and beguiling as the spices and scents of the Orient.
“The joy of playing, sense of sound and sense of style, both vocally and instrumentally, is breath-taking. …after 67 highly impressive minutes you have two options: sit dreamily and savour the silence, still fully immersed in the atmosphere of the music, or restart the CD immediately.”
"A program that is definitely worth listening and fascinating in its rich facets." Great ambition is wonderfully fulfilled. A wonderful Album.”
