Acclaimed violinist and fiddler David Greenberg is excited to announce the release of his new album Multiple Voices for One. Recorded in June 2022 in Bauman Auditorium, George Fox University, Multiple Voices for One is an exploration of the intersection between two ostensibly opposed musical aesthetics: Baroque and Cape Breton. The results of this unusual pairing quickly reveal themselves to be rich with depth and intrigue, complimenting one another in surprising and beautiful ways.    

Speaking on the unique combination of aesthetics, Greenberg says, “What I especially love about these baroque-folk pairing are the surprising things that one genre learns from the other—the music’s emotional range increases dramatically. Their combined story feels spontaneous and capable of expressing both profound melancholy and wild joy. Unconventional musical techniques and expressive vocabulary become newly available as one world meets another.” 

Greenberg has spent much of his career exploring the intersection between Baroque and Cape Breton aesthetics, gifting him with a particular knack for unique ways to meld styles, all with an improvisatory bent. These factors combine to create a record balanced between worlds; Baroque and Cape Breton, classical and folk, composed and improvised. 

For over three decades, Greenberg has enjoyed a double career as a Baroque violinist and Cape Breton fiddler. His fluency and experience in these two genres make him uniquely qualified to interpret the wild music of 18th-century Scotland. David is a graduate of Indiana University’s Early Music Institute, where he studied with Stanley Ritchie. He has performed, taught, and recorded primarily in North America and Western Europe, as well as in Australia, New Zealand, and the Far East.  

Greenberg has performed with Tafelmusik, Red Priest, Les Musiciens de Saint-Julien, Concerto Caledonia, Apollo’s Fire, Ensemble Caprice, La Nef, Toronto Consort, Seattle Baroque, Les Voix Humaines, Chris Norman, Suzie LeBlanc, Doug MacPhee, and Musica Pacifica. He has performed as guest soloist/director with several orchestras, including the Calgary Symphony Orchestra and Symphony Nova Scotia.
