More Info:

Concerto Köln is one of the leading orchestras for historically informed musical performances and recordings. Recent concerts of Wagner's "Rheingold" and an album released together with soprano Jeanine de Bique have been celebrated and praised by critics and listeners alike. The conceptual originality of their work seems endless. In their newest album "Pi - Pisendel", baroque violinist Mayumi Hirasaki, Concerto Köln's leading concertmaster for the past ten years is highlighted. As an inspiration for the program served her historical role model, the violin virtuoso, composer and concertmaster himself Johann Georg Pisendel. According to Hirasaki "It should be a program that doesn't only focus on me as a violinist, but also unfolds the virtuosity of the whole orchestra." Together as a unit concertmaster and ensemble present a diverse selection of Pisendel's pieces that stand out through their rich orchestration, stylistic variety and instrumental virtuosity. Again, the artistic vision of Hirasaki and the concerto Köln captures the imagination of the listener with an accurate recreation of the historic sound and an innovative, refreshing interpretation.
