Monday Motivation: Frank Bungarten Edition

“Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit upon his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.”
-H.L. Mencken

Frank Bungarten is the winner of the 2005 Echo Award for best instrumentalist. I don’t have much to say about Mr. Bungarten; he is a fantastic, expressive player.

    There’s no doubt why he won an award for best instrumentalist, and the expressions on his face are classic

    I think it’s interesting that Bungarten seems very perfectionistic and an ‘oldschool’ classical musician: ‘play exactly what the composer intended’! Still the music seems to flow from him with natural ease and very relaxed. Very musical as Chris says.He reminds me of the recorder player Michala Petri in his approach – also in his wide choice of old and modern repertoire.
