North West, Singapore, Jan. 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) —
As we know, NFT has triggered huge waves in the art world. And in music, the hurricane effect of NFT is also as expected. As NFT becomes the center of the music industry, Kolo, which was incubated by Kuke, was also officially launched. The first commercial opening time of the KOLO platform is GMT 07:00, January 20, 2022. The first batch of published online works are representative recordings of top contemporary artists. Then there is the presentation of these cherished artists for everyone:
Which artists will be in the starting formation?
One of the most remarkable pianists of the 20th century
The author of the first batch is the Austrian pianist, composer Friedrich Gulda. Gulda is a unique genius in history, who achieved huge success in classical and jazz music. In the field of classical music, Beethoven’s Piano Sonata played by him is considered one of the best versions in history. From the 1950s, he became interested in jazz and improvisation. So, he wrote several songs and instrumental pieces of his own, sometimes he would also combine jazz and classical music in his concert. It is this unorthodox approach that crosses borders that has earned him the nickname “Pianist of Terror”, but Gulda is also widely recognized as one of the greatest pianists of the 20th century. His bold innovation of classical music is exactly in line with Kuke’s central idea – “Sound of innovation” – inheriting the classics, embracing technology and constantly innovating.
The greatest cellist since the last century
The second element comes from Pablo Casals’ interpretation of Bach’s six cello suites, described as the unequaled absolute classic of cello works. This legendary work is unfortunate. Until 1890, in a second-hand music store in Barcelona, a teenager Casals came across the scores written by Bach at the beginning of the 18th century. After 12 years of painstaking study and practice, he performed the first song (BWV 1007) for the first time in public at the age of 25 and immediately shocked the music world. After a long struggle for perfection, the full album was finally recorded at the age of 60. His version remains unique for its powerful, impulsive and moving conviction. Casals is today considered the greatest cellist of the last century. He greatly enhanced the cello’s status as a solo instrument with his incredible capacity for performance and work development.
One of the most eminent violinists of the 20th century
The third on sale was Brahms: Violin Concerto in D Major by Ginette Neveu. Neveu’s recordings are rare, but they remain in the catalogue. The Brahms Concerto is one of his finest recordings in 1946. Brahms’ only violin concerto, Violin Concerto in D major, Op. 77, was written in 1878, which was dedicated to his friend, the violinist Joseph Joachim. Joachim hailed it as one of the four best German violin concertos. Despite the age of the recording equipment, Neveu is still one of the few geniuses in history to have recorded something truly infectious. In 1949, at the height of her career, Neveu was killed in a plane crash while on tour, and the music world lost one of its greatest talents. People can only marvel at his electric live performances, hunt down his rare recordings and mourn the untimely death of one of the greatest stars of the century. People can only marvel at the ups and downs of his live performances, chase after his rare wonderful recordings, sigh at the death of a star of the century.
The combination of NFT and the music industry has become a trend. The launch of KOLO will serve as a starting point and demonstration for the classical music industry’s NFT. KOLO will cultivate people’s consumption habit of paying for digital music, create a better music ecological environment, expand the global territory of digital classical music works, and become the main market competitiveness.
