“Fratres is a repetitive piece – but played like this, it proves that repetition can thrill”

(Bachtrack, October 2021)

On the generous permission of the Estonian Instrument Foundation and the Sapožnin family, Hans Christian Aavik currently plays on a Giovanni Paolo Maggini violin (made ca 1610 in Brescia, Italy) and on bow made by Victor Fétique (made ca 1930 in France).

„Violin in his hands sings, cries, dances, storms, grieves, fondles and cares. From Aavik's playing one can see mental and physical completeness. Behind the spark, excitement and philosophically thought out interpretation, lies there a curious and open mind, thankfulness and respect to the composer and to the listener”.

 

(Sirp, November 2020)
