a string mysterious

 

I’m excited to announce that I am creating my first solo album, a string mysterious.

a string mysterious combines ancient and new musical meditations on transcendental subjects. Three of Henrich Biber’s Mystery Sonatas (The Annunciation, The Crucifixion, and The Resurrection, composed c. 1676) are contrasted by arresting new pieces for baroque violin by Mark Rimple and Riho Esko Maimets.

When two works of art are placed next to each other, their relationship creates a third experience. Each work sheds light on the other. I’m fascinated and enlivened by this, and it’s what I’m seeking to explore in my album. 

January 2017: The record is in the final stages of preparation, with a release date coming shortly. Watch this space…
