With 'Zenith', the internationally renowned soloists Anna Stegmann and Jorge Jimenez follow up their successful debut album 'Lunaris'. As there, the experts in historically informed performance practice have created with 'Zenith' a new sound world all their own, in which, artistically at the highest level and beyond conventions and stylistic dictates, they confidently transcend their original habitat.
If you look directly up towards the sky you can visualise the highest point of the celestial sphere, the zenith. This imaginary point describes anything exactly above a particular location. In exploring and extending this idea, our programme boldly inhabits the electric fields of original and arranged repertoire for recorders and different types of violins.
RETHINKING BACH: GOLBERG VARIATIONS
The urban myth says that Johann Sebastian composed his GOLDBERG VARIATIONS to ease the nights of insomnia of one of his patrons: Count Keyserlingk. Still unsure whether this account is totally true or not, the hypnotic nature of the Goldberg Variations is a fact. Jimenez has arranged and recomposed this monumental work of art for unaccompanied violin.
RETHINKING BACH - Goldberg Variations will be released in May 2022 by Pan Classics, preorder your copy here!
