At the Concerto Köln Speak! project - the Mozart Requiem in the original and in a rap version by 8th grade rappers. Listen to The Fidelio Podcast with classical violinist and hip-hop artist, Miki Kekenj, discussing how he was able to teach these students about Mozart using rap.
The Fidelio Podcast is available on iTunes, TuneIn, and directly from my website!
Giuliano Carmignola and Concerto Köln in Hyogo, Carmignola was nice, but Mayumi Hirasaki concertmistress of Concerto Koln was more splendid. specially Charles Avison's Concerto no.6 was overwhelming and unforgettable.
Not all musicians believe in God, but all believe in Bach - Mauricio Kagel.
オタク情報in English. Reviewing a Passion CD is difficult. I could go through all the criteria such as soloists, orchestra, evangelist, recorded sound etc one by one, but what is most important is the sum of all those parts and how they come together to move me spiritually. This does the job well, very well in fact. Young Julian Pregardien is an excellent evangelist, and while no-one can quite match Haefliger and Fischer-Dieskau with Richter, this is certainly up there among the best HIP performances.
The drama of Gardiner with the spirituality of Herreweghe. Can't get much better than that, unless you like your Bach OVPP. #concertoköln#bach
