When I was younger I simply couldn’t stand the sound of Baroque instruments. It puzzles me now, as I really love them. I wonder if it’s just that I was so busy trying to refine my (modern) sound I couldn’t deal with other sounds. That might be it, since I was also SO harsh about any sort of tone other than the American sound.
These days I just love it all, as long as it’s musical and in tune. Variety … it’s not a bad thing.
This video was a fun listen. The d’amore player is Emmanuel Laporte, in case you are wondering. The group might be the Ricercar Consort, since I do see Philippe Pierlot playing.
If life were longer and time weren’t an issue I would so love to learn Baroque oboe … or maybe the Baroque d’amore, as it is quite lovely!
You’ll hear some speedy tempi here …
