Air: A Baroque Journey

by Daniel Hope
 
Air sets out to trace a Baroque journey. It is the story of four unique composers, three of whom were virtuoso violinists -- Falconiero, Matteis, and Geminiani from Italy, and Westhoff from Germany. They wandered throughout Europe during the 17th and 18th centuries in search of musical inspiration and cross-pollination, and their music and art of performance

Overview

Air sets out to trace a Baroque journey. It is the story of four unique composers, three of whom were virtuoso violinists -- Falconiero, Matteis, and Geminiani from Italy, and Westhoff from Germany. They wandered throughout Europe during the 17th and 18th centuries in search of musical inspiration and cross-pollination, and their music and art of performance intrigued and delighted kings, contemporaries, and audiences alike.

This album shows how diverse the music of the Baroque era was. Air: A Baroque Journey blends the simplest and at times most primitive forms of dance music with the most sophisticated and revolutionary compositions of the day, culminating in a work by Bach -- the great master, whose composition is Daniel Hope's inspiration for this collection, which also includes hits like Pachelbel's Canon and Handel's Sarabande. -- From the Label
