Additional information

With this album, violinist Mayumi Hirasaki, who has been Concerto Köln’s concertmaster since 2011, explores the chameleon-like possibilities of her instrument: when playing with scordatura, instead of the usual fifths interval between the violin strings, an alternative is used in which at least one string is tuned to a different pitch. This results in completely new sonic and harmonic possibilities, which Mayumi Hirasaki presents in works by Heinrich Ignaz Franz Biber, Biagio Marini and Giuseppe Tartini, among others – sometimes highly virtuosic, sometimes dance-like or cantabile.
