PROJECT

BAROQUE AND PRESENT

A fantastic and authentic Baroque sound






OLD MEETS NEW

The concept of sound & design, is based on the Baroque sound, and design ideal, in the encounter with the absolute latest, of our time, in digital technology. A happy meeting. It is fascinating when two eras meet, and the result is exceptionally good.


DESIGN FROM THE 1720S AND TECHNOLOGY FROM 2020

Here, 300 years have passed between the innovations, and today these ideals fit like a glove.


THE NEW FANTASTIC TECHNOLOGY IN THE SERVICE OF THE BAROQUE MUSIC ERA

The new mini amplifier Yamaha THR 5 A for acoustic plucked string instruments, together with the software programs: MuseScore, Reaper, Kontakt and the sampling program Berlin-Harpsichord, and the wireless microphone plugs from Boss, means that new and old can be combined at the absolute highest level with a sound result beyond the ordinary. The baroque music sounds fantastic and varied with exuberant resonant sounds from the 18th century.

The Concept

Baroque & present


This is also, where a new Yamaha THR 5 A, a tiny amplifier, specially built for acoustic guitars, and the sampling program, Berlin – Harpsichord, from the German technology and computer company, Orchestral Tools, meet. The role models in design, and sound, for both Lars Forslund, and the technicians, at Orchestral Tools, have been French and Italian harpsichords, from the 18th century.

Music for the soul

Camerata Mandolino Classico


In the concert program "Music for the soul", a “cembalino d'amore” a small harpsichord with resonant strings, with a typical French, Baroque painting, in gold, red and black, meets a master mandolin, built by the skilled Italian, mandolin builder, Maestro Pandini from Ferrara, Italy. Wonderful sounds, and vibrating resonant strings.
