Our group - La Cantonnade - is a young ensemble found by musicians from four different nations. What unites us is the passion of bringing previously unknown pieces of music from the past to life. Our debut CD is dedicated to the chamber music of the German composer and flutist, Jakob Friedrich Kleinknecht (1722-1794) from Bayreuth. Your support will help us make this music (in first recording!) audible and accessible to all.
As an ensemble for early music, our intention is to get audiences acquainted with trio sonatas by the composer Kleinknecht. It was our flutist, Miho Shirai who discovered a trio sonata by J. F. Kleinknecht by chance and we realized that it is a perfect instrumentation for our ensemble. As soon as we played the piece at our first rehearsal, it grew close to our hearts. We were surprised to find that there are no available audio recordings or CDs of trio sonata.
What is the project goal and who is the project for?
This album is of special interest to music lovers (amateur as well as professional musicians) who enjoy listening to instrumental music or play and are open to rarely played repertoire. The literature of Baroque age is extensive and it is essential for us to be able expand our repertoire.
Why would you support this project?
Special emphasis is given to lesser-known repertoire of the early and late Baroque. These Kleinknecht trio sonatas fill a gap between Baroque and Classical for the flutes and are of amazing quality. Even though recordings of different musical genres are readily available for listeners, we are certain that audiences will enjoy discovering trio sonatas via this new medium. At KulturMut, as a supporter you can help make this music accessible and audible to all.
How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded?
The money received from you goes towards covering the complete cost of recording our first album. The album is professionally recorded, produced and published. With the financial support some of the expenses can be covered, including Gema fees, studio and hall rental, harpsichord transport as well as promotion.
Who are the people behind the project?
The musicians of the ensemble for Baroque Music "La Cantonnade" got to know each other at the Frankfurt University of Music and Performing Arts. Their enthusiasm for chamber music, their interest in sound research and their desire to stage unknown repertoire of early and late Baroque brought them together.
