Who are the people who decide the 'correct' way to perform the music of the past? Now we are in an age when electronic sounds can (nearly) flawlessly imitate the sounds a performer makes. Where does this leave the performers of the future? Can the use of modern music technology challenge the way in which classical music is played? These are a few of the questions Mats Claesson intrinsically poses with this recording.
"My version of the Holberg Suite has no intention of being a “sound alike”. In using modern music technology my aim is to be both creative and challenging, expressing how I would like to hear the Holberg Suite played. I hope you enjoy my version. It may sound foreign to your “traditional ears”, but I hope it will open a new perspective for you on how the Holberg Suite might be played."
Mats Claesson graduated from the Norwegian Academy of Music in 1981 with classical guitar as his principal instrument. He now has a position there as Associate Professor of music technology and section leader for composition, music theory and music technology. As music producer and sound engineer he has worked with Arne Nordheim, Ian Xenakis and John Cage.
