His solo CD, Orpheus, I am, was received to critical acclaim in the US and Europe:
Joel Frederiksen must be one of the few contemporary singers able to accompany himself on the lute, as surely
Renaissance musicians did. In his pleasingly resonant voice, and with his considerable taste, Frederiksen sings
songs from three nations.
American Record Guide:
The lute and viol playing is certainly top notch on this recording of English, French, and Italian music of the 17th
century. But the real attraction on this recording is the singing. Joel Frederiksen has a lovely bass voice...I would buy a disc just for any number sung by Joel Frederiksen, whose magnificent bass is by now well known
in the early music world.
So wins Orpheus I am alone already through timbre-painting a special attraction. Joel Frederiksen âpaintsâ, but not
only that, he is also convincing stylistically.
Early Music America:
Frederiksenâs vocal nuances are splendid. Orpheus, I am is well worth the hour of listening it provides. Frederiksen, with his powerful bass voice, makes a worthy Orpheus.
Ensemble Phoenix was formed in 2003 for the recording of âOrpheus, I amâ, a CD of Renaissance and early Baroque music from England, Italy and France. Established by Joel Frederiksen after moving to Munich, Germany, the ensemble is heir to his previous group, Lâantica musica New York (1989-2001). Ensemble Phoenix has a Munich concert series and performs internationally presenting a wide range of programs from the European Renaissance and Baroque (c1500-1650) and from Early America (c1800-1900). The ensemble is also active in the commissioning of new works.
The interest of artistic director Joel Frederiksen lies in innovative and original programming based on careful research. The ensemble regularly performs from original facsimiles, and uses historical instruments and tunings appropriate to country and time period. For its association with creativity, regeneration and fire, the Phoenix was chosen as the symbol for this ensemble.
