About the album
While their first album, Old, New & Blue, was an encounter between two styles, Carrousel, the second album of Holland Baroque and Eric Vloeimans, does away with boundaries between Baroque and modern. The musical amalgam is a fact. The result is a weird and wonderful blend of two worlds. The world of early counterpoint and the world that's called Eric Vloeimans. Eric's music can't be understood in terms of a particular composition technique, but it is the outcome of years of experience in improvising and writing his own music.
‘With the help of a choir (Helmond Vocal Ensemble) and a celesta, we rock the world asleep in Mumu, only to swing like a Brazilian Choro in Chorizo. Together with Eric, we sway between cornett and celesta, between Bach and Vloeimans. Floating between heaven and earth, between the Baroque and the present.’
