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.

From February 16 to 25, Dom Radio will host a series of concerts by the famous cellist and composer Yiorgos Kaloudis (Greece). For many years he has been exploring the possibilities of playing the Cretan lyra, one of the most ancient musical instruments. Combining the techniques of cello playing and the features of the traditional Cretan lyra, he improved the instrument by adding a fourth string (lower cello C).

Yiorgos Kaloudis will give four concerts at Dom Radio presenting the rich possibilities of the lyra and an extensive repertoire: from Baroque music to modern compositions in which the unusual timbre of the Cretan lyra is enriched with electronics.

On February 18, Yiorgos Kaloudis will perform the programme LA RÊVEUSE. It opens with a hymn dedicated to John the Baptist. The music is attributed to the founder of the entire European musical system Guido D’Arezzo: the initial syllables of the lines of the Latin hymn Ut queant laxis – ut, re, mi, fa, sol, la – still signify the steps of the scale. The English song of the 13th century about saying goodbye to summer is placed side by side with a selection of famous vocal compositions by the greatest poet and composer of the Middle Ages, Guillaume de Machaut. These are followed by outstanding examples of French music of the 17th and 18th centuries for viola da gamba – a one-part concerto for two violas da gamba (transcribed for one Cretan lyra) by Jean de Sainte-Colombe and pieces by his famous pupil Marin Marais.

On February 19 and 21, Yiorgos Kaloudis (Greece) will perform four Cello suites by Johann Sebastian Bach in two concerts. The cycle of six solo suites, written by Bach in his Köthen period, is akin to the Bible for modern cellists where hidden polyphony saturates the dance basis of the suite parts, and the performing complexity is subordinated to the creation of a melodic current of enormous emotional power.
