On their debut recording ‘Pas de bourrée’, Copenhagen-based ensemble Camerata Øresund presents music by lesser known Baroque composers in the context of the major composers active in Europe in the same period.
Camerata Øresund is a vibrant group of dedicated musicians. Founded in 2010 by Artistic Director and violinist Peter Spissky, the group’s members are drawn from the Øresund region of southern Sweden and eastern Denmark – areas linked by the famous Øresund bridge. Here they present their debut album ‘Pas de bourrée’.
Peter Spissky uses his long study of dance and movement to bring life to baroque music, seeing the score as a starting point rather than a finished product. All of the articulations Peter chooses are a result of the physicality of body movement informing how the music moves as well as sounds. The title ‘Pas de bourrée is a term found in ballet and is defined as a “quick running step”. Etymologically, the word bourreé originates in the Baroque era – a dance of French origin.
Camerata Øresund strives to find connections between European countries and the musical communication that was happening throughout the Baroque era. They connect new finds of lesser known composers, such as the Swede J.H. Roman and the Frenchman A. Campra, with composers such as J.S. Bach, A. Vivaldi, G.Ph. Telemann and H. Purcell. They question musicological authority and present lesser known gems in the context in which they were conceived and written. The album ‘Pas de bourrée’ is a colourful kaleidoscope of moods, emotions, characters and stories. Camerata Øresund remains true to their promise that everything they touch will turn into a dance!
