About this project
Welcome to the Kickstarter campaign of Goeyvaerts String Trio supported by Challenge Classics record label (NL). We are very excited to see you becoming part of the new CD of the trio which has all it takes to reach hearts of millions. Vulnerable, strong, hopeless and resurrected - the musical message of their new album brings two polarities together to show that everything in life flows and needs no judgement but surrender.
Goeyvaerts String Trio
"Full of delicacy and passion"
Goeyvaerts String Trio is an extraordinary Belgian ensemble known for their trademark perfectionism in every detail and high acclaimed works. Their creative spirit, outstanding play and sense of humor makes them a perfect match for Kickstarter. Goeyvaerts String Trio's first album on Challenge Classics, namely String Trios, caused enormous response from the media. “Full of detail, each note, each phrase, honed and polished...”, said The Strad, while Gramophone called the album “a special disc" with "the finest string trios”. Their second album made BBC Music Magazine exclaim that the trio has "performing nerves of ice.”
Challenge Classics is a highly regarded, creative and artist-driven independent classical label in the Netherlands. The label presents the music that is new or rarely ever performed. It is all about music that makes people curious. Even standard repertoire becomes a version you have never heard before. Due to the developments in the musical industry, many record labels have reduced their investments in new recordings. On contrary, Challenge Classics is continuously increasing investments in attempt to let classical music grow. Being open-minded company and looking for the different fresh ideas, Challenge Classics turns to Kickstarter to launch the upcoming CD of one of their most outstanding musicians on the roster: Goeyvaerts String Trio.
This time for their new album Goeyvaerts String Trio turns to the emotional drama of noted Arvo Pärt and his world famous "Stabat Mater" complemented by the specially composed uplifting piece from Ivan Moody "Simeron". This time the trio collaborates with the best vocalists of Vox Luminis in the pursuit of translating the sorrows into the hopes of new beginning with a delicateness only Goeyvaerts String Trio can show.
Their radical focus on every musical detail will make this recording an experience that reaches far beyond. Behind the sober lines of Pärt's "Stabat Mater" they create a whole spiritual dimension. Using the technique of so-called "just intonation",the trio creates layers of sounds which lay on each other. This particular way of playing resonates with one's feelings immediately. It is just like the icon is drawn with a layer laid upon another layer, this composition is played sound wave gently laid upon another sound wave. And that explains the stunning effect their play makes - speechless you stand in front of both icons and their music... While the first composition will hypnotize you, Moody will lift you up to a new state of being.
£10 000 is the rough amount of money necessary to record and complete an album. However, we don't want to stop on that: in case the contributions will skyrocket and precede this number, for £20 000 extra we will make a DVD and with £10 000 we will make a documentary with interviews and behind the scenes footage. So, every extra donation will lead one step closer to a much bigger product!
