United Ensemble of Lucilin, the flagship contemporary music ensemble of the Grand-Duchy of Luxemburg, had opened the Fuga Libera collection in June 2004 with a remarkable double album comprising six creations entrusted to the expert hands of Mark Foster (FG 0501). They return for an equally original project. At the crossroads between period and modern instruments, Goldberg’s ghost takes possession of the score of the Goldberg Variations of Johann Sebastian Bach, of which the aria, the Quodlibet and the complete canons have been retained, spiced up for the occasion with creations by Garth Knox, Bernard Struber, Ton de Kruyf, Brice Pauset and Marcel Reuter - an astonishing, inspired and prestigious mix. Anne Galowich’s delicate harpsichord opens the ball and Garth Knox sets the tone on a viole d’amour, for a fascinating initiatory quest which leads us to reflect - and one will never do it enough - about the timelessness of the Cantor’s genius. To be discovered with eyes closed and greedy ears.
