Works by Vivaldi and Hendrix

Antonio Vivaldi’s ›Four Seasons‹, artistic programme music of the early 18th century, has long achieved the status of a ›classic‹ – music that we all know. The recording of the four violin concertos with The Deutsche Kammer­philharmonie Bremen and concertmaster Daniel Sepec was met with critical acclaim upon its release and, although not played on historical instruments, is still considered a reference recording.

Between the concertos, you can hear a ›classic‹ of a very different kind: guitar legend Jimi Hendrix, who died at a young age. Like no other, he embodied the sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle of the late 1970s. What rock and baroque have in common is that both genres lean heavily on the bass, which sets the rhythm and harmony, says Sepec, who was first introduced to Hendrix’ music as a teenager and was excited by its »wildness and directness«. The programme features three of Hendrix’s best-known compositions accompanied by specially adapted orchestral arrangements.
