On the 9th of July Goeyvaerts String Trio in collaboration with Challenge Classics will launch a crowd-funding campaign on Kickstarter.com to fund the new album of the trio. You will earn great rewards in return for your support!
Kickstarter.com is a leading online platform to fund various projects. It is also very successful among musicians. Everyone can support an artist and his project (be it a new album or official video) with a chosen amount of money, but it is not a simple donation. Each financial contribution literally buys a reward. Rewards vary from a copy of the album to the exclusive meet-and-greets, private performances and much more.
Challenge Classics sees Kickstarter as a great new way to engage and benefit for both artists and audience. And who could be better than Goeyvaerts String Trio to debut in this role? Known for their perfectionism in every detail and high acclaimed works, Goeyvaerts String Trio is also a group of absolutely open-minded people with a great sense of humor. Above all, they always come up with an extraordinary repertoire. Their upcoming CD to be funded via Kickstarter isn’t an exception! Blending the despair of Avro Pärt’s renown “Stabat Mater” and Ivan Moody’s “Simeron”, specially composed for this record, the forthcoming album will become yet another perl for the world to admire.
Goeyvaerts String Trio's first album on Challenge records, 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 of the 20th century”. Their second album made BBC Music Magazine exclaim that the trio has "performing nerves of ice.”
Their upcoming third record is already well anticipated. This time 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.
Do not miss the Kickstarter campaign of Goeyvaerts String Trio on the 9th of July! Become a part of this remarkable album! The rewards for donations are ranging from a signed copy of this CD to a private webcam concert to an exclusive meal "a la Flamande" (Flemish way) in the intimate family gathering of the trio with them cooking for you! More information on rewards and contributions is comign soon.
