Silk Baroque is a new DSD release that brings together Wu Wei and Holland Baroque. It features a program of Baroque Music with beautiful Sheng sounds. The music, composed by Purcell, Bach, Vivaldi, and Telemann along with traditional music from China, has been arranged by Holland Baroque's artistic team of Judith Steenbrink and Tineke Steenbrink. (Native DSD Music listeners will remember Judith and Tineke Steenbrink from the DSD Sampler "8 Ensembles in 1 Bit" on the Just Listen label.)
Speaking about this special collaboration, Wu Wei says, “Baroque music is like light. It touches you and attracts your attention whether you want it or not. You get caught in it and I mean both in positivity, and in nostalgia, and heartbreaking sorrow.”
Holland Baroque says "Wu Wei is a contemporary musician who comes from an ancient tradition. It’s no coincidence his Sheng case has a sticker on it that says: ‘Good things stay, new things arrive’.
Holland Baroque totally agrees with Wu Wei’s view of life. On the album Silk Baroque, ancient Chinese traditions are interwoven with baroque elements and improvisations. Old music does not exist; the music is only finished when you play it. We look forward to the new album with this incomparable sound virtuoso."
Silk Baroque is available today in Stereo and Multichannel DSD 64 at the Native DSD Music store. Save more by using the ST+MCH button when ordering both versions of the album at the store.
