Recording CD Griet De Geyter & Il Gardelino

 

Griet & il Gardellino | Presentation soloist & Baroque Ensemble

Griet De Geyter, soprano solo on this cd:

A great amount of my practise and concert work is dedicated to J.S.Bach, his contemporaries and predecessors. I like how Bach challenges me every day, both in musicality and flexibility of the voice. If you take an interest in my experience or study path, feel free to visit my websitefacebookpage or LinkedIn.

About the baroque ensemble:

Il Gardellino is a Flemish instrumental ensemble for Baroque music, founded in 1988 on an initiative of the oboist Marcel Ponseele and the flutist Jan De Winne. The ensemble plays on period instruments in historically informed performance. Works by Johann Sebastian Bach are there focus. Il Gardellino and Griet have worked together in various projects and concerts, mainly playing works by Bach. More info at www.ilgardellino.be

Three important reasons for this project

Having participated in numerous cd recordings, both as a soloist and an ensemble-singer, I finally will record my first solo-album. Because I have a very long and loving relationship with baroque music, this cd will cover three great baroque composers: Buxtehude, Telemann and J.S. Bach. The splendid musicians of il Gardellino baroque ensemble and I are recording during 4 days in january 2020. The recording location is a church in Hilversum (NL) where we have a small but beautiful baroque organ at our disposal.

Secondly, the music I carefully selected are pieces that suit my voice very well and speak directly to my and probably (m)any soul(s): they combine introspection and extrovertism, darkness and brightness, restlessness and peace.

And last but not least: after almost every concert I sang in the last couple of years, people who were in the audience came to me or wrote me to say thanks for my generous, soulful singing and the consolation I gave them. Often they openhartedly tell me part of their life story or a heavy occurence that happened lately. Every story touches me.  Many people seem to search for consolation, for a moment of peace or have the need to escape for some time from reality into music. With this project I wish to give some beauty and peace to any human being.

WHY SHOULD I SUPPORT THE CD?
 

These days, CDs are made for the love of recorded music and intimate listening at home--they're no longer a commercially sure venture, and making them is expensive. Your contribution will be a direct investment in an assured artistic statement and a gorgeous musical document that will exist forever, and will go straight toward the following (post-)production expenses:

  • the invaluable work of the producer, engineer, and incredible ears of Jean-Daniel Noir (https://www.studionoir.ch/) – 3.000€
  • many hours of editing and mastering work – 2.000€

And we have already had to subsidize many other large costs for a total cost of 15.000€ via other funds, il Gardellino vzw and the label Passacaille:

  • rental of the recording venue, a church in Hilversum,
  • fees and  travel expenses for the brilliant instrumentalists,
  • travel expenses fort he sound engineer,
  • booklet texts by Alex Potter (www.alexpotter.info),
  • cover artwork by Lucia Ghielmi,
  • cover photography by Ola Renska,
  • the pressing and physical creation of the CDs themselves,
  • PR for the finished recording, to get as wide a distribution and recognition of our work as possible.

 Other costs: 8% KissKissBankBank commission = 400€
