“Himmelhoch Jauchzend”

September 15, 2018

This is a live-audio-recording (with only one not very good and not well-placed microphone… 😉 …) of our concert (Perles Sonores) in July 15, 2018 in Vreden, Germany.

Again, I turned it into a video using a.o. artwork by my late mother.

It’s an original composition for viola, voice, piccolo trumpet and positive organ, that I performed here connected to the prelude of the Second suite for viola in d by Bach, of which you will still here the last chords, leading right into my own composition. It is inspired a.o. by the aria ‘Rejoice’ from Haendels Messiah, and Johann Sebastian Bach’s Cantata #51, “Jauchzet Gott in allen Landen” (‘Praise Ye God in All Lands’), BWV 51. The text is my own, in German and English.

Composition, viola, voice: Dominica Eyckmans , Piccolo trumpet: Robert de Boer, Positive organ: Pauline Schenck
