"From Bach Till Dawn" by Dominik Baumgartner (Classical Artist from Switzerland)

Dominik Baumgartner's latest release album is "From Bach Till Dawn." In this album Baumgartner has created an exceptionally choice collection of Baroque era classical music that is created through a virtual orchestra enhanced by sophisticated computer generated software. The song, "Hänsel und Gretel – A Fairy Tale Opera: Act II - "Introduction: The Witches' Ride," is well orchestrated as the woodwinds and flittering brass section perform with a dynamic intensity. For the "Brandenburg Concerto No. 3 in G Major, BWV 1048: III. Presto" we find ourselves confronted with an intensely swirling interplay between the strings as a brilliant counterpoint precision runs with powerful and exquisite tonality. The sound textures within the song, "Choral: The Old Forest," is replete with stirring choir like voices and violins that are dark, brooding, and emotive which gives this song a haunting sense of mystery. This album is one in which Baumgartner has embraced the musical world using the aid of a computer and this is no easy feat to accomplish as each song is well produced and well balanced with high quality sound textures. This album is perfect for those who already enjoy Bach, as it is a refreshing new look at Baroque music but isn't a break away from what makes the music so powerfully special to begin with.
