What if some of history’s greatest composers were alive and making music today? How would they blend their signature sounds with more modern vocals and performance and production techniques? How would they stay relevant and progressive, as they mostly were in their time? As a recovering classical purist, I’m exploring these questions, because people deserve to hear this music and this music deserves to be heard.
I take the essence of historical masterpieces - the bits that make them so devastatingly beautiful - and reconstitute them with a modern flavour and feel to give new life and perspective to songs that have helped shape the evolution of music.
The music as it was first written has inspired my love of this art and I want to make it more accessible to the modern listener while honouring the original, so a new generation may be as profoundly influenced and affected as I have.
Listen below to a snippet of the 16th century lute song I’m currently working on called 'Now O Now I Needs Must Part’ by Renaissance composer John Dowland, sometimes referred to as the first singer/songwriter. Arranged by and featuring Jared Haschek on piano.
