    about / credits

    about
    This recording contains the music from the chamber opera "Don Quixote" produce for the exhibition project Museutopia.
    In a meeting of apparent contrasts "Don Quixote" pursues a utopian dream. Music of the 17th century, interpreted by the countertenor Johannes Reichert, meets contemporary improvisation of the 21st century. Henry Purcell's music in its timelessness forms the basis.
    Using the common Barocque technique of the "Pasticcio", pieces taken from his theatre music were assembled to form a new independent work.
    Celebrated as greatest English composer even during his lifetime, Henry Purcell died aged 36 while working on the scene "From rosy bow'rs" of his dramatic work "The Comical History of Don Quixote". In the chamber opera "Don Quixote" the two celebrities meet in person.
