Discography: (DE) TYXart New CD Release: "TIERISCH BAROCK - When animals talk" (October 2015)

Contributed by admin on Nov 27, 2015

Works by Biber, Scarlatti, Vivaldi, Uccellini, Merula, Buonamente, Cazzati, Williams, Matteis and Orme (Premiere Rec.)

Tierisch Barock - Incredible baroque zoo - the title lives up to its expectations: a CD full of baroque music, full of animal voices and thus full of baroque aesthetics and fascination.

Nel Dolce approaches the topic of "Man, animal and music" through a multifaceted selection of compositions of the early and the high baroque showing the musical study of the animal kingdom in the most diverse ways possible. ...

Compositions featuring a connection with animals started emerging from the mid-1500’s on.


"We hope the selection on this CD album offers a comprehensive view of the multifaceted, fascinating animal kingdom as we can experience it in Western classical music. And we are thrilled to share our enthusiasm with you, the listeners!" Nel Dolce"
