Yorck Kronenberg “CD of the Week“ on Kulturradio rbb
17.11.2014: Naturalism instead of spectacular effects: Berlin’s culture radio channel Kulturradio rbb presented Yorck Kronenberg’s CD, which features the keyboard concertos of Johann Sebastian Bach, as its “CD of the Week”. For the pianist, who recorded the works together with the Zurich Chamber Orchestra on this double CD set, originality and spectacular effects are not so important. Instead, the musicians follow the natural flow of the music with temperament, enthusiasm, and a strong instinct for the nuances.
The author of the feature praised the performance: “Yorck Kronenberg executes the ornaments spontaneously and with style, improvising where the score allows and calls for it.” She also emphasized the unique interpretation of the works, commenting on how the musicians bring a charming sense of swing into Bach’s keyboard concertos through their way of playing.
