The violinist from Vic, Joel Bardolet, is a singular musician. With clear skills and exultant musicality, his particular way of approaching key works from the international repertoire has earned him a prominent place in the current panorama of central European orchestras and chamber ensembles, with whom he collaborates on a regular basis, both as concertmaster and soloist.
His unusual interpretative permeability has led to the choice of some very carefully constructed programmes in collaboration with musicians who allow him to work strongly in favour of rhythmic intention, phrasing and sound compactness. Bardolet’s style is assertive but not finalistic; he addresses the listener, asking them questions with the aim of establishing a personal dialogue and creating an accomplice. In short, he acts as participant in the artistic and creative process.
Joel Bardolet brings a fresh and very musical vision, with a touch of fantasy in a context based –excessively- on orthodoxy. His solid criteria, the result of expertise acquired in Catalonia, Germany and Switzerland, appears to be suggestive of a renewing effect. The voice of the violin. A voice, its own exceptional voice.
Album in physical and digital formats, with a 44 pages book with liner notes by composer Joan Magrané in Spanish, English and Catalan.
Works by Kurtág, Pärt, Trümpy, Pianelli and Oliu; they demonstrate that music written today is not so far from what we habitually look for as listeners, in spite of certain prejudices. An intense, high-flying artistic experience that -played live- captivates us through the vibration of the instruments and the silence of the space, and when collected on disc allows us to close ourselves up with the music, seeing ourselves reflected in the intimacy of the composer, note by note, breathing, becoming one with the performer as we follow the dance of his bow.
