Excellent album for the 450th birthday of Michael Praetorius In his collection of works "Terpsichore", named after the muse of dance in Greek mythology, the German composer Michael Praetorius (1571-1621) collected all the popular dance hits of his time and arranged them for instrumental ensemble. The collection of 312 dances, published in Wolfenbüttel in 1612, has surprisingly fallen almost completely into oblivion. Now the Capella de la Torre under the direction of Katharina Bäuml presents a selection of the best works from "Terpsichore" - music that still makes your feet tap today. On the occasion of the 450th anniversary of Michael Praetorius, the ensemble has selected from the "Terpsichore" branslen, courantes, ballets, pavanes and galliards - as the dances of the time were called - and bring them to the ear in a completely new way through the combination of historical wind instruments with lute and organ. Music and the appropriate movements are mutually dependent and influence each other in the programme; improvisations alternate with written movements. In addition to works by Praetorius, the album also features joyful, dance-like pieces by other composers of the era, such as Claude Le Jeune, Thoinot Arbeau, Adrien le Roy and Clement Jannequin With "Praetorius Dances" Katharina Bäuml and her ensemble transport "dancing" feelings and moods across all times to the present - in a colourful and exceedingly contemporary performance.
