BCQ goes for Baroque
Credit: Blue Chamber QuartetWhether they're engaging with Baroque music, or classicromantic, or jazz, the four musicians making up the Blue Chamber Quartet bring sophisticated artistry and vibrant Spielfreude to their readings. Their unusual instrumental combination of piano, vibraphone, harp and double bass opens up an exciting and rich palette of tone colour. In the Bachianas Brasileiras by Brazilian composer Villa Lobos the bridge from Bachian harmonies to music of the 20th century is crossed. The concert reaches its climax with the world premiere of the Messiah Jazz Suite.
