Emotional Landscapes – Björk is Baroque

Emotional Landscapes – Björk is Baroque

Emotional Landscapes – Björk’s songs performed on baroque instruments…

With a very typical sound of the baroque period, Emotional Landscapes invites listeners to experience the Icelandic pop-star’s songs in a completely “organic” version.
The beauty of Björk’s melodies take on a completely different flavor – far from the electronic profusion of her albums – and it is marvelous to experience them in a such intimate way !
It seems so obvious that songs can have a very strong effect on us without their creator singing them, without technology producing them.

Is it not the signature of timeless works ?

Emotional Landscapes exists in three versions :

In trio :

Anne Magouët : soprano
David Chevallier : theorbo, baroque guitar, arrangements
