Various Composers - Always About Love
Brisk Recorder Quartet Amsterdam
Alongside 16th and 17th century music from England, France and Germany, the sound of more recent times should not be lacking on this album. The quartet has arranged versions by Cecil Sharp and Benjamin Britten of the English folksong O Waly Waly. “Love is handsome, love is kind”, but love may fade away like the morning dew. Dawn is also used as a metaphor for the beloved in Max Knigge’s Ochtendbede, based on a sonnet by Jacques Perk. Hans Koolmees has written two songs about earthly and heavenly love, based on texts by the medieval mystic Hadewijch and the modern Flemish poet Eva Cox, and finally Walther Stuhlmacher has composed a wordless farewell. However different these worlds may seem, it is always all about love. The All About Love program will be played on tour at least 7 times in 2020, more dates will be added to the schedule shortly. Brisk is the only remaining recorder quartet in the Benelux. This album is made in a hand numbered limited edition of 600 copies.
