Holland Baroque has a preference for sound artists for whom improvisation and composition are second nature. Wu Wei is such a musician. Incredibly virtuosic and passionate, Wu Wei has brought his instrument to all parts of the world as a true ambassador. The sheng is the extraordinary ancient Chinese mouth organ that evokes three thousand years of Chinese music culture and is a small wonder of harmony, melody, and rhythmic possibilities.
Holland Baroque and Wu Wei present an innovative program with a silky edge. ‘Silk Baroque is one of the most innovative albums of recent times. Surprising, colorful and played and arranged by fantastic musicians!’ (Music Frames, June 2019). Erik Voermans said about Silk Baroque in het Parool: ‘It is the seriousness and genuine interest in each other’s musical worlds that make this project a success. Silk Baroque forces you to put aside prejudices, and that is beautiful. “
Repertoire: Vivaldi, Bach, and Telemann, Chinese traditionals in arrangements of J. and T. Steenbrink.
