– A REIMAGINING OF J.S BACH’S ERBARM’ DICH MEIN, O HERRE GOTT BWV 721
NEW ALBUM SAINT BOY IS OUT ON 13 JANUARY
CURRENTLY ARTIST IN RESIDENCE AT THE SOUTHBANK CENTRE, DANIEL WILL PLAY A VERY SPECIAL SHOW AT THE ICONIC LONDON VENUE ON 22 JANUARY
Daniel Pioro has today released his brand-new single, a reimagining of J.S Bach’s Erbarm’ dich mein, o Herre Gott BWV 721.The single is the second piece of new music to be taken from his upcoming album Saint Boy, following the release of Kolysanka in October.
Speaking about the new single, Daniel says:
‘This song is an invitation to rest, to cleanse the mind, and to be held. It invites us to share in the beauty of unadorned sound’.
Daniel’s new album Saint Boy, scheduled for release on 13 January 2023is a collection of ancient and contemporary, sacred and secular music for solo violin, chamber organ and string quartet. From the liturgical ritual of Hildegard von Bingen to the beauty of Laurence Crane, Saint Boy is a demonstration of Daniel’s technical virtuosity, imagination and belief in the storytelling potential of music.
A devotion to sound lies at the heart of this album. Pioro invites the listener to sit within the four walls of his violin, to be enveloped by its voice, and to have the inner workings and mysteries of the instrument revealed as he performs a kaleidoscope of music, including works he composed, arranged, and commissioned.
Daniel Pioro is a soloist, collaborative artist, and advocate for new and experimental music. After making his debut at the BBC Proms in 2019, where his performance of Jonny Greenwood’s new violin concerto was described as “inventive and engaging” by The Daily Telegraph, Daniel continues to grow his international career.
Daniel was recently confirmed as the Artist In Residence at the Southbank Centre and commenced his residency with the London Philharmonic Orchestra and Andrew Manze on 26th October 2022, performing the London premiere of Tom Coult’s violin concerto Pleasure Garden, and a performance of Vaughan Williams’ The Lark Ascending as part of the composer’s 150th anniversary celebrations. He will return on 22 January to perform an all-day cycle of Biber’s Rosary Sonatas with organist James McVinnie in an immersive event, incorporating the sunrise and sunset over London.
