 Alina Rotaru Soloist


The harpsichordist Alina Rotaru plays selected works by Johann Jacob Froberger, one of the most enigmatic composers of 17th century harpsichord music.  A subject of countless speculations, his programmatic and personal music is a creation of an exquisite and sensitive mind, and points to Frobergers personal connections to thinkers and alchemists of his time.  Alina Rotaru shows with her interpretation a spirited and insightful image of the brilliant and profound thinker, virtuoso and traveler Froberger was.
 

"The music of Johann Jakob Froberger ...is fertile ground indeed for aspiring harpsichordists, and Rotaru has chosen perhaps his best-known piece, the Tombeau faît à Paris sur la mort de Monsieur Blancheroche, to open the program ...all of the suites recorded here (the C Major excepted) are inspired by actual events in the composer’s life. Rotaru’s playing is ... assured and authoritative; one hangs on every note as the musical narrative unfolds. She understands the gesture and rhetoric behind the music, which allows her to engage in a kind of conversation with the listener. The performer must walk a fine line in Froberger, but Rotaru’s thoughtful keyboard work always lands squarely at the service of the music, and never veers into self-aggrandizement.As with all Carpe Diem CDs in my experience, the engineering is exceedingly lifelike. The booklet includes an excellent essay by Wolfgang Kostujak, one of the leading experts on Froberger’s music. In all, a successful second effort from this up-and-coming artist, and highly recommended."

Christopher Brodersen - Fanfare - September 2012


"...I was drawn to the ricercar on this disc. It is a piece that brings to life a time when, as in Kircher’s intellectual world, science and mysticism were not always separate. Rotaru accentuates the piece’s esoteric and earthbound aspects in equal parts. She mingles the grand sound of pillar-like organ sonorities with a style of free resonance that evokes the lute’s “broken style” of playing. Her deep understanding of musical structure in the ricercar is evidenced in her acute sense of timing between sections. This release is excellent, musically satisfying, and beautifully presented."
