Paolo Pandolfo / Daniel Almgren Recén

Italian gamba master Paolo Pandolfo presents his fascinating vision of early music and its development over the centuries, shedding light on phenomena in contemporary culture. He stresses the importance of improvisation as a tool for penetrating the work’s structure, aimed at creative work rather than mere reproduction. Being a conscious artist who independently defines his or her own aesthetic stance calls for incessant exploration and for complete commitment, backed up by hard work. Technical perfection should never become an end in itself, however, and dampen the natural enthusiasm derived from artistic creation. Drawing pleasure from whatever we engage in is of overriding importance.
