Return to Forever is a celebration of the epic pop and baroque compositions, arranged in subtile and refine way.
Certain artists push boundaries and challenge conventions, searching for new values, despite the common thinking about the classical and popular music.
Il Giardino d’Amore Orchestra presents the crossover project between baroque and pop music.
The fusion of different music stiles is nothing new. Collaborations between classical and pop performers have included already Sting and Edin Karamazov in album Songs from the Labyrinth. A collaboration between Freddie Mercury and soprano Montserrat Caballé resulted in the worldwide hit Barcelona or R&B singer Mariah Carey performed a live duet with her mother Patricia, who is an opera singer, in the Christmas song – O Come, All Ye Faithful.
Il Giardino d’Amore with their dynamic baroque string, rhythmic and wind sections, brings full, and rich freshness to each of the chosen pieces. No electric guitars or modern drum sets will be used. „We want to focus on finding a different color and sound quality . The diversity and power of the baroque instrumentation will bring a new value to the existing compositions.”
„Dramaturgy, tempo, and climax of the show are some of the essential elements of our productions.” That’s why we take care of the set up on stage, liberty of expression – playing by heart, reinforcing the passionate moments in music to give the public feeling of continuity, and feeling of one big line of the show from it’s start to the end.
For our program, we have chose epic pieces of Stivie Wonder, Michael Jackson Jamiroquai, Sting, Bee Gees, Adele, Beyonce, Stan Plewniak from the popular singers of our times. Those artists search for their inspiration deeply in the roots of classical music, widely using the classical strings and winds instruments in their songs, making them sound rich, and unforgettable.
In our program we will present also baroque most famous pieces by Vivaldi, Lully, Handel, Rameau, Bach and which were endless source of inspiration for the popular artists.
