Recension Pinnacle

Pinnacle (Navona)

"...Pinnacle is a tasting menu for current chamber music.... Hans Bakker's particular brand of blended tonality is explored through three pieces on the program. 'Leys III' is an almost pastoral approach to flute, guitar, and violin that is highly tonal. 'Hortus Conclusus' is deeply mired in minor modes and self discovery as the piano and violoncello plod through emotionally thick material. 'Brenne' is a delightful mix of the two."
