The pianist and composer Marina Baranova released her album “Hypersuites” in 2016 on the Berlin Classics label. “My Hypersuites are acoustic remixes of Baroque masters,” the artist explains. For this project she chose compositions by four Baroque composers – Couperin, J.S. Bach, Rameau and Handel – and combined individual pieces by them into four new suites. Then Marina Baranova adapted, improvised and arranged the Baroque music forms in new guise within those suites. This was all in the spirit of Baroque music, whose composers frequently remodelled their works 300 years ago in order to suit different occasions by adding variations and new cadenzas.

Marina Baranova is a classically-trained concert pianist whose roots are in both the classical and jazz fields, but whose interests span out much fur ther than that. The idea for the “Hypersuites” came to her during a DJ session. She came to the conclusion that DJ scratches were really nothing more than the modern form of Baroque musical ornamentations.

So the logical conclusion was to add an additional tone colour to the hypersuites: electronic editing of Marina Baranova’s version for solo instrument.

Hauschka wrote a 6-minute version of Rameau’s “La Poule” for the “Hypersuites Reloaded” album. Well known for his prepared piano and film soundtracks, this musician is open to new projects that lead him deeper into the realm of classical music with orchestra and chamber ensembles.
