Capella de la Torre
Markus Becker - piano
Michel Godard - serpent, tuba, electric bass
musical direction: Katharina Bäuml
catalog number 21075
Renaissance ensemble Capella de la Torre on the one side, tuba player and composer Michel Godard and pianist Markus Becker on the other, combine jazz with the alien distance of the renaissance instruments by letting the past and the present meet and collide. They give worlds of differing memories a new form and let the heterogeneous become something new and homogenous.
A co-production with NDR 1
"With the Renaissance ensemble Capella de la Torre on one side, and tuba player/composer Michel Godard and pianist Markus Becker on the other, jazz collides with an alien universe of renaissance instruments. The result in this live recording is entirely unexpected and brilliant, capturing the flavor and zest of the Renaissance's addictive mix of old and ancient instruments, providing an elusive, ingenious musical experience that refuses to be generalized."
