Bathed in the light of history, the walls of Dom Radio have a deep meaning to musicAeterna. They form a space for invigorating rehearsals, a space voiced and discovered by musicians through performances, a space full of thoughts and discussions on various aspects of culture: philosophical disputes and talks on modern period poetry, Byzantine chants and music of the future.

Dom Radio’s key mission in musicAeterna’s activities is to be a place where new art is born without limits or boundaries. That process begins in the silent solitude of Dom Radio, where, invited to Saint Petersburg by Teodor Currentzis and the musicAeterna art committee, the resident develops his ideas. Even before his vision is brought into life, his ideas are reviewed by the musicians who let them sound during creation. The outcomes of that creative laboratory descend into the main halls of Dom Radio, where they meet the audience. Temporarily separated from their phones which symbolize everyday matters and troubles, the listeners walk up into the thundering marble shadows to face something new — and to take an essential part in the ultimate birth of the ideas conceived during the residency.

Dom Radio presents a concert-performance by Saraf and Phurpa projects who work with vocal and performative practices, elements of improvisation, noise and ancient ritual music. The performance of the Saraf project is a new variation of the age-old myth of the Great Sunset and the inevitability of the apocalypse. The Phurpa project is a collective meditation based on mantras, throat singing, and specific vocal techniques.

300 years ago, in 1722, Johann Sebastian Bach completed the first volume of the Well-Tempered Clavier. This collection of preludes and fugues was conceived as ‘a guide to tonalities’, providing an experience of fluency in all 12 major and 12 minor keys, including those that were almost never or never at all used at that time. 22 years later, a second volume was added to the first. The extensive work eventually became the ‘musical Bible’ of all musicians, which saw entire generations of performers and composers mature.

In the year of the first volume 300th anniversary, Dom Radio and the Faculty of Historical and Contemporary Performance of the Moscow Conservatory present a festival-marathon in which all 48 preludes and fugues from both volumes of the Well-Tempered Clavier will be performed.

Lecture 2: Vision and the Avant-garde Cult of Vision

The second lecture from the cycle of meetings The Teachings of the Church Fathers with the patrologist Vadim Lurie is devoted to the Christian theology of the 2nd — considered the “darkest” — century AD. At that time, Christian thought had moved far away from the theology of the 1st century, but it had not yet used the language of Greek philosophy as confidently as it became customary in the 3rd century. The history of Christian theology of that era is poorly traced by modern scientific methods and raises more questions than answers.

Lecture 3: The Inception of Christian Monasticism (4th – 5th centuries)

Monasticism as a special institution has been documented since the 320s. According to indirect data, it can be assumed that it appeared at the end of the 3rd century. However, according to the author of the lecture, patrologist Vadim Lurie, the prototype of monasticism could be seen in earlier teachings. The third lecture of the cycle The Teachings of the Church Fathers is about the ideals of monastic life and monasticism as an institution.
