Cancao - Music From the Iberian Peninsula


'Cancao Music from the Iberian Peninsula', the new limited-edition album by the BRISK Recorder Quartet Amsterdam, comprises music from many different stylistic periods, from the end of the 15th century to the present day and illustrates the influence of the different cultures which left their traces in Spain and Portugal.

Igor Stravinsky once said, "The only fitting comment on a piece of music is another piece of music," and this thought has also fascinated BRISK for many years. Through the ages, compositions have been arranged for different instruments, embellished, or used as a source of inspiration to write entirely new pieces. Putting early music in new settings is an essential part of the group's identity. The quartet has made many transcriptions and arrangements of both vocal and instrumental compositions, and often writes its own elaborate diminutions for existing pieces. Modern composers including Martijn Padding, Ron Ford, Theo Verbey, Calliope Tsoupaki, Bart Visman, Klaas de Vries, Roderik de Man and many others have been invited by BRISK to write a musical comment on a certain style or composition.

Since their founding in 1986, BRISK has given countless concerts in important concert halls and festivals throughout Europe, Bolivia, Canada and the USA. BRISK has recorded for radio and television both in the Netherlands and abroad, as well as recording ten CDs that have been well received by both press and public.
