Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Schoenberg CD of the ensemble Het Collectief (Fuga Libera FUG504) rightfully received several international awards. It also went a long way to highlight the exceptional qualities of this permanent ensemble whose soloists decided to thoroughly explore the resources of the typical quintet of the Second Viennese School. And here, Het Collectief, give us an entirely new, fascinating insight into the Musical Offering of Johann Sebastian Bach. While scrupulously respecting the original score, the five musicians apply a different style of execution to each part, reaching out 'con amore' to the Gypsy or Baroque traditions, to Jimmy Hendrix, Anton Webern and many others. But beyond their stupendous performance, the musicians convey to the Read more contemporary music lover a refreshingly novel reflection upon Bach's genius. With this highly original recording, Fuga Libera initiates a new series of productions that will venture off the beaten track to meet and reveal the creative endeavours of today's classical interpreters.
