Lutenist Dohyo Sol, and recorder player Emelie Roos, are both admired virtuosos on their respective instruments, and highly regarded on the Early Music scene- that of the music of the Medieval, Renaissance and Baroque periods.

Despite the fact that Emelie and Dohyo have been performing together for many years, the cd ’Meetings with Bach’ is their highly anticipated debut recording as a duo.

What really happened during those long summer days in Leipzig, when master lutenist Silvius Weiss visited the home of Johan Sebastian Bach? Improvisational duels of excellence, or a more relaxed musical dialogue between friends? Contemporary witnesses recall there being ”rare and elegant music played during this time”. We also know that it was during this period that Bach added a congenial upper part to music originally composed by Weiss purely for solo lute, namely his sonata in A Major. This augmentation added a new dimension and perspective onto Leopold Weiss’ already masterful composition, earning it a place in the catalogue of Bach’s works, as BWV 1025. On the cd ”Meetings with Bach”, we are also presented with Bach’s second cello suite in Dohyo Sol’s own transcription for lute. Of the encounters with Bach on this colourful recording, we are met with his son, Carl Philip Emmanuel Bach, whose dynamic and frequently eruptive music stands in stark contrast to the more fashionable gallant-style of the time.


"In the garden of Bach"

In the summer of 1739, JS Bach's eldest son, Wilhelm Friedemann Bach, travels home to visit his family in Leipzig. With him is his friend and musician colleague from the court, the famous lutenist Silvius Leopold Weiss. They stay for four weeks and the Bach house is filled with chamber music and improvisation. It is probably then that the remarkable work BWV 1025 comes into being - a solo suite for lute that Weiss had previously written, an upper part is added by Bach's hand.With surprising playfulness, Bach puts himself into Weiss's work - sometimes reinforcing the lute part, sometimes shining himself...

The concert program "In the Garden of Bach" offers this work as well as other works by Johann Sebastian Bach and his family members.

"Soft lute and sweet flute"

A journey with music from the time of the Knights, the Renaissance and up to the 18th century. The duo plays a number of different lutes and flutes, which belong to the repertoire and sound ideals of the different times.

Music by, for example, Ferrabosco, Dowland, Van Eyck, Kapsberger, Castello and Bach.
