New CD by Joel Frederiksen and EPM (28.10.16)
Songs full of melancholy, and songs of love's joys and pains, composed by the Orpheus of England, John Dowland, have lost none of their immediacy and poignancy since the Renaissance. Joel Frederiksen accompanies his deep, expressive bass voice on the lute, and is aided by an expert ensemble of viols and lutes, to shape this exquisite program of vocal and instrumental works.
Ensemble Phoenix Munich announces its 10-Anniversary Season in Munich!
The concert series "Between Mars and Venus" at the Bavarian National Museum was founded in 2007 by Joel Frederiksen and Ensemble Phoenix Munich. In 4 subscription concerts per season the ensemble has explored English, Italian and French Renaissance and Baroque Music in sold-out performances.
For the 10th Anniversary Season the Ensemble will dedicate itself to Munich composers who worked at the court including Ludwig Senfl, Orlando di Lasso and Michelangelo Galilei. In addition we will continue our new "SOLO" series with three concerts and host the Czech Ensemble Baroque. Check out our calendar! First concert October 13.
Successful concert on the 1st of October: "Love's Triumph"
The first concert of the Series Between Mars and Venus IX offered an insightful look at the connection between East and West in music. Joel Frederiksen with his lute and the Syrian virtuoso singer Rebal Alkhodari with his oud, sang to Love in all of its various forms. Accompanied by Mohamad Fityan (arabian flute) and Vladimir Ivanoff (percussion), they succeeded at building a bridge between both worlds. Coming at this time of crisis the concert was especially poignant and powerful.
Thanks to the US Consulate in Munich and the Bavarian Radio for their support.
