Kristine West & Mariangiola Martello
Johann Sebastian Bach’s flute sonatas are chamber music repertoire of rare quality. The six sonatas are all very different from one another in both style and character, and they provide a musical material to explore in depth, to live with and to discover new elements to over a whole lifetime. Swedish recorder player Kristine West recorded these sonatas at an age of 25 (the recording was named “die neue Referenzaufnahme”, by Markus Zahnhausen in Klassik-heute.de).
Back then, it took her a certain amount of courage, at an early stage in her career, to choose to record this particular well-known repertoire. Her aim with her playing, irrespective of in a live concert or a CD recording, has always been to play as she feels that the music must be played. She wants each moment, tone or phrase to exhibit complete conviction in its interpretation, based on impulses and inspiration between the musicians playing together. This approach has taken her from the forests of northern Sweden to the international music scene.
In this concert Kristine West and italian harpsichord player Mariangiola Martello play Bach’s music together with favourites from the baroque repertoire. Inbetween the pieces, a mix of newer music as well as improvisations and sounds of swedish folk melodies might appear.
