New duo CD with Swedish Grammy winners Hoor Barock! What really happened during those long summer days in Leipzig, when master lutenist Silvius Weiss visited the home of Johan Sebastian Bach? Improvisational duels of excellence, or a more relaxed musical dialogue between friends? Contemporary witnesses recall there being "rare and elegant music played during this time". We also know that it was during this period that Bach added a congenial upper part to music originally composed by Weiss purely for solo lute, namely his sonata in A Major. This augmentation added a new dimension and perspective onto Leopold Weiss' already masterful composition, earning it a place in the catalogue of Bach's works, as BWV 1025. On the CD "Meetings with Bach", we are also presented with Bach's second cello suite in Dohyo Sol's own transcription for lute. Of the encounters with Bach on this colourful recording, we are met with his son, Carl Philip Emmanuel Bach, whose dynamic and frequently eruptive music stands in stark contrast to the more fashionable gallant-style of the time. Lutenist Dohyo Sol, and recorder player Emelie Roos, are both admired virtuosos on their respective instruments, and highly regarded on the Early Music scene- that of the music of the Renaissance and Baroque periods. Residing in the small village of Hoor in Skane, Emelie and Dohyo are the founding duo and artistic directors of the award winning and internationally acclaimed ensemble Hoor Barock, along with it's affiliated festival of the same name. Among the many accolades bestowed on Hoor Barock over the years, we must mention the Swedish Grammy win for their CD 'Golovinmusiken'. Aside from this recording, Hoor Barock have released three more critically acclaimed cds that have attracted international attention: "Devotion, artistry, esprit and expertise" (Klassik Heute, Germany) "... The performances are so well executed, stylish and sunny" (Gramophone, UK). Despite the fact that Emelie and Dohyo have been performing together for many years, the CD 'Meetings with Bach' is their highly anticipated debut recording as a duo.
