Info for Caught in Italian Virtuosity

"Caught in Italian virtuosity" - so das Motto, unter welchem das aufstrebende Ensemble "4 Times Baroque" sein Debut-Album beim Label deutsche harmonia mundi herausbringt. Es ist diese oft schwindelerregende Virtuosität, die sowohl Spieler als auch Hörer italienischer Musik des 17./18. Jahrhunderts völlig gefangen nimmt. Eine Virtuosität, wie sie uns in Werken wie etwa der "Ciaconna" von Tarquinio Merula begegnet. Oder in einer der wohl bekanntesten Kompositionen über einen gleichbleibenden Bass, der berühmten "Follia" von Arcangelo Corelli. Weitere virtuose Meisterwerke des italienischen Hochbarocks, die auf dem Album zu finden sind und von den vier jungen Herren des Frankfurter Ensembles "4 Times Baroque" fulminant interpretiert werden, sind Vivaldis berühmtes Concerto "La Notte", die Ouvertüre zu Händels Oper "Rinaldo", Sammartinis Sonate in F-Dur und als ausgesprochene Entdeckung die Triosonate in d-Moll von Pierre Prowo, der aus einer Altonaer Musikerfamilie stammte und ab 1736 als Organist der reformierten Kirche in Hamburg-Altona nachweisbar ist.

4 Times Baroque:
Jan Nigges, Blockflöte
Jonas Zschenderlein, Violine
Karl Michael Simko, Cello
Alexander von Heißen, Cembalo

4 Times Baroque
was founded in 2013 by the four young musicians Jan Nigges (recorder), Jonas Zschenderlein (violin), Karl Simko (cello) and Alexander von Heißen (harpsichord).

Based in Frankfurt (Main), the quartet is one of the most exciting ensembles of the new generation of early music performers and has already been invited to well-known festivals throughout Germany and Europe. The quartet is dedicated to developing a close rapport with their audience, and not only through their musical performances: entertaining concert talks and discussions are conceived to provide musical and historical backdrop to their programmes, and allow the public to stay up-to-date with the ensemble's personal work. The musicians' close friendship has carried over into their still-budding professional careers, and their unique rapport is palpable on stage and in their playing.

The FAZ (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung) described a concert at the Rheingau Musikfestival as a "fresh, energetic and thrilling performance," the Schwäbische Post went so far as to call them "popstars" and "four young shooting stars."

In 2013, 4 Times Baroque won the audience prize at the international Marini competition in Neuburg. Following this, they produced their first CD including works by Arcangelo Corelli to commemorate the 300th anniversary of the great composer’s death.

In 2014 the quartet was invited to their first radio broadcast at the SWR as part of the festival Rhein Vokal and the SWR2 Kulturnacht. The 2015-17 seasons included engagements at festivals such as the Rheingau Musikfestival, Thüringer Bachwochen, Festival d‘Ambronay and the Meraner Musikwochen.

As part of the Eeemerging program (Emerging European Ensembles), the quartet receives support from several early music centres throughout Europe. Upcoming concerts and residencies have been organized in France, Poland, Latvia, Germany and Italy.

This is 4 Times Baroque's first album release for Deutsche Harmonia Mundi/Sony.

This album contains no booklet.
