Fresh Perspective on Medieval Love Poetry

Holland Baroque presents Minne, an improvised programme inspired by the love poetry of medieval mystic Hadewijch from Brabant. Hadewijch was a 13th-century beguine who wrote an impressive oeuvre of love poetry, providing an original, female perspective on medieval life. For this project, Holland Baroque works together with Bastarda Trio, a folk-jazz group combining the unique sonorities of clarinet, cello and contrabass clarinet. Inspired by medieval poetry, the result is a playful, passionate, truly contemporary album.

Holland Baroque is an original and innovative baroque orchestra that approaches baroque repertoire through a fresh and contemporary approach, with a focus on improvisation and collaborations with outstanding artists from different traditions. Minne is their fourth PENTATONE album, after having released Brabant 1653Polonoise (both 2021) and Silk Baroque (2019) with the label. Bastarda Trio makes its PENTATONE debut.

About Holland Baroque

Holland Baroque is an original and innovative baroque orchestra. The musicians use their instruments to sing, dance, cry, and laugh through tradition, innovation, surprise, and a dash of entertainment. Founded in 2006, Holland Baroque has worked with many soloists, composers, choirs, and theatre producers. Tineke and Judith Steenbrink are the artistic team and beating heart of the ensemble. These baroque twins curate the ensemble’s sound, create original programmes, and rewrite repertoire according to Holland Baroque’s style. After years of musical encounters it is crystal clear to us: baroque can be found in many places. Baroque is now.

About Bastarda Trio

Founded by clarinettist, improviser and composer Paweł Szamburski in conjunction with two other unconventional musicians: Tomasz Pokrzywiński (cello) and Michał Górczyński (contrabass clarinet). This unusual combination of instruments creates a unique, completely new timbre, which has become the characteristic feature of Bastarda’s style.

The Trio has been praised for creating their own musical language, which has become the tool for reinterpreting early music. Chorales, motets and litanies are merely starting points for improvisation and new compositions; rich counterpoint of early polyphony implodes into minimalism; the “alla bastarda” method finds its way in a new context. That way musical traditions of the past morph into A modern, original and personal artistic voice.
