OK, are you ready for something completely different? From someone who has already recorded two complete sets of Bach's six suites for solo cello, BWV 1007-1012, no less? Where to begin? Dutch historical-performance specialist Pieter Wispelwey disregards the long performance tradition associated with these six suites, which seem like cousins to Bach's sonatas and partitas for solo violin but are actually quite different in character (there are no sonatas, for one thing). Even players of the Baroque cello sometimes seem to have Pablo Casals' magisterial recordings in their heads, but Casals is not in the building at all for these readings. They seem to rest on three principles.
Leitmotiv is a Frédéric Truong musical project that plays principally melanchonic instrumental pieces, full of sadness and pain, but opened to the light at the same time. The music of Leitmotiv is inspired by various themes, as the notes of "Suspended Moment" retrospective suggest. Through the past full-length albums in fact it’s possible see inspiration by cinema, emotions, feelings, war and racism refuse. The last and wonderful surprise from this artist comes from the birth of her daughter Sophie that became his muse. The most of Leitmotiv works were released by own label, Karismatik, that now is dead. During 2002, Frédéric Truong finally decided to close Leitmotiv project. So after the last album Parc Sainte-Marie, he began to release records under its own name.
