Gyöngy Erödi, baroque violoncello
J. S. Bach, 3 suites for violoncello solo BWV 1007, BWV 1008 & 1011
Three suites for Violoncello by J. S. Bach, played by Gyöngy Erödi on a baroque violoncello in the incredible acoustics of a small chapel in the Austrian mountains. A very special and personal rendering of these iconic masterworks.
What makes this particular recording so special, apart from the very special and powerful music? First of all, we have a cellist for whom these pieces are absolutely central and essential in her musical life and career, and who puts all her energy and love into this music, making the recording a deeply personal and even biographical rendering of a most timeless and universal musical work.
Secondly, we have the magical mountain chapel St. Peter in Austria, a sacred space and ancient power spot, that merges with the sound of the instrument in every moment of the recording. It almost became an instrument of its own during these recording sessions, adding colors, harmonics, and spaces to the music even in unexpected places, thus creating a kind of meta-level to the interpretation that transcends personal ideas and interpretational intents of the original music.
The CD & PDF booklet contains an introductory text as well as poetic texts and short stories written by the artist for every piece on the album.
never heard such a wonderful tone in a cello, never heard such wonderful emotional involvement, really a 10 million stars recording !!! And the improvisation is amazing... Waiting for the remaining 3 suites... !
Ich habe es bis jetzt nur unterwegs als stream gehört, dass aber sehr oft abends im Hotelzimmer. Bin gespannt wie es zu Hause auf der guten Anlage klingt. Definitiv aber eine spannende Interpretation.
