Deth-Life

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Uncle Dave Lewis
New Classical Adventure's Deth-Life takes its title from a paired viol piece by Tobias Hume and provides the basic theme for the album; the cycle of life and death as perceived by musicians of the early through mid-Baroque, with an emphasis -- naturally -- on death, as there are a lot more pieces of music composed on that subject as opposed to life. The ensemble is Hamburger Ratsmusik, which typically consists of only two people, gambist Simone Eckert and Ulrich Wedemeier on theorbo and archlute, and for a large part of the disc only Eckert is heard solo; Michael Fuerst chips in on organ here and there.

All Music Guide - Uncle Dave Lewis
New Classical Adventure's Deth-Life takes its title from a paired viol piece by Tobias Hume and provides the basic theme for the album; the cycle of life and death as perceived by musicians of the early through mid-Baroque, with an emphasis -- naturally -- on death, as there are a lot more pieces of music composed on that subject as opposed to life. The ensemble is Hamburger Ratsmusik, which typically consists of only two people, gambist Simone Eckert and Ulrich Wedemeier on theorbo and archlute, and for a large part of the disc only Eckert is heard solo; Michael Fuerst chips in on organ here and there. It's all very low key and the mood well suits the painting on the front cover; the music does remind one of some old philosopher, equipped with skull and quill, scribbling away in a huge manuscript volume the wisdom of the ages. There is not a lot of variety in terms of instrumental color, but you don't mind. François Couperin's hit "Le Baricades Mistérieuses" is played as a solo piece by Wedemeier on theorbo, and it's a lovely match of music and instrument. New Classical Adventure's Deth-Life is definitely a late-night option, something that will sound good with a good book and a glass of warm milk; human skull not required.
