Amandine Beyer | Gli Incogniti
« April storm »: one of violinist Amandine Beyer and her ensemble Gli Incogniti’s favourite program. Pachelbel’s famous canon is accompanied by pieces of utmost virtuosity seldomly performed and highlighting the great tenor Hans Jörg Mammel’s tone and diction.
Pachelbel’s famous Canon turned him into the musician the most played in the streets all over the world… But this brilliant program will embark you on another journey, one built around elements for two violins and continuo by the Musikalische Ergötzung.
In other words, some enchanting musical delight whose sound hedonism emerges from these partitions. The most important instrumental tribute made to a German musician well-versed in mixing French, Italian and German styles. A few songs bring some new lease of life to this music already so magnificently free!
« I enjoy the kind of music that tells a story… We drew inspiration from Dutch paintings with people drinking, singing and laughing…” Who better than Amandine Beyer could master such a seemingly easy program … The technical complexity is however formidable. Such captivating duplicity…
