For forty years, saxophonist Arno Bornkamp has consistently dazzled the music world with his energetic and passionate interpretations. On his new GENUIN CD Folies de Baryton, the world-renowned artist gives his audience a glowing declaration of love for the baritone saxophone, which is rarely played as a soloist. Bornkamp shows here the immense possibilities of this instrument with its deep, raw, and powerful tone. The program focuses almost exclusively on contemporary music, featuring works by Györgi Kurtág, Peter Vigh, Giuseppe Ruggiero, and Luca Francesconi. Arno Bornkamp juxtaposes them with several of Marin Marais' famous variations on Les Folies d'Espagne, which sound as natural as if they had been written for saxophone more than 300 years ago. What an exciting sound journey!
