Uncover My Love

Arnold Kasar

The tessitura of the double bassoon, over the bassoon, the English horn, the oboe d’amore up to the oboe is comparable to that of the piano. The full spectrum of Astria Oboe Trio and HaftCraft is quite homogeneous because the instruments belong to the double reed family. This has been the fascinating basis for Arnold Kasar to arrange existing works for piano and adding new compositions. To do this, Arnold went to the Black Forest, his native region.
For his electronic music he almost exclusively falls back on sounds and software he has built himself. The result is alienating but establishes a link to the music of Henry Purcell, granting Shakespeare’s sonnets a astonishingly modern feeling, which makes them come captivatingly close.
