Freiburg Baroque Orchestra on Spotify Fux Freiburger Barockorchester

Recently, I’ve been further convinced of the awesomeness of the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra, and this is the reason why…
The music of Johann Joseph Fux is well written, well woven and can drive my roommates more insane than any of my grindcore, industrial of dubstep collection :-) It can be mindblowingly dull sometimes, when the performers just don’t give something extra. Scrolling through several CD’s on spotify, the agreeable (and dull) Fux versions of Suites and Overtures flowed through the loudspeakers, nice but unnoticeable. Enter the Freiburg Baroque, two or thee phrases and whoom, they got the Fux sound right. Not only well written, but also fun, excitement and grandeur…!
It’s not the Christine Pluhar like actualization that does it, it’s the language of the music itself they understand, that with techniques from that period it’s possible to find “new” sounds and adventure in the scores to revitalize the music again. So, curious what you think of this CD,
I enjoyed it very much and has been playing many times now on my Spotify account… !
