Cembalisten Elina Albach är en barockmusikinterpret som dras mot det experimentella. Hon tycker barocken inte ska samla damm utan presenteras för nutida lyssnare med alla sina rika och mångsidiga egenskaper. Och inget hindrar ju att man spelar nutida musik också på cembalo!
Harpsichordist Elina Albach and her ensemble CONTINUUM are interested in presenting the repertoire of the Baroque, with all of its rich and diverse texts in a contemporary context. She is interested not only in the specific, immediate concert form, but rather in creating a contemporary repertoire using the potential of versatility found in period instruments.
