Using over 40 instruments, the Boreas Quartett Bremen invite you to join them on a journey between the sound spheres of early and new music.more
"Music is played with the finest playing culture, contrasting narrative with lyrical and highly virtuosic passages." (Pizzicato)
Between Spheres is dedicated to the lyrical sound of the recorder consort. The combination of seventeenth century music with a contemporary cycle written for the quartet has a captivating effect, leaving the listener wondering as to where one epoch might end and the other begin.
The recorders of the Boreas Quartett Bremen reveal a diverse range of magical soundscapes, skilfully switching between the birdsong of Poglietti's Rossignolo and Schönewolf's Unter Kranichen, the hypnotic low instruments used in the late renaissance polyphonic Ricercari, and the agile and highly virtuosic parts in fugal works of both epochs. The pieces are closely interwoven, hovering "between spheres".
Following their award-winning Basevi Codex album of 2022, this is the Boreas Quartett Bremen's second audite album.
