Notes & Reviews:
Duets from thousand years of musical history for young people from 0-100 years. Patricia Kopatchinskaja invites us to join her for a musical expereince that mixes composers spanning the eleventh century to present day. This album and book tell the story of this utterly crazy recording with the help of a rich selection of photos by Marco Borggreve. The barefoot violinst is joined by many musician friends including a clarinettist playing the ocarina, an improvisatory harpsichordist, an electro musician, a toy piano player, and even her daughter, Alice. Take Two includes compositions from Bach, Miljaud, Cage, Sanchez-Chiong, and many more. It is said that Patricia Kopatchinskaja is "as irresistible as a force of nature: passionate, challenging and totally original in her approach; (RPS Music Awards)" a statement that is ever apparent on this album!
American Record Guide, March/April 2016
The "tone" for the recording is clear from the opening piece, 'Overclockers 5' by Jorge Sanchez-Chiong, which mixes vocal sounds from Kopatchinskaja and Sanchez-Chiong with electronic sounds and turntable effects from the world of Hip-Hop. Kopatchinskaja clearly has an interest in this eclectic repertoire, including the Bach, she and her accompanist stray beyond the boundaries of good taste.
