Details

In one programme, they combined music from two different eras: historically informed performance of baroque masterpieces and the latest works of the 21st century. Both kinds of music demand intellectual effort from performers and listeners, but more importantly, they comment on and even explain each other.

musicAeterna contemporana consists of some of Russia’s finest performers of new music. Many of them have extensive experience in performing both contemporary and early music. With guest harpsichordist Ekaterina Byazrova they will play the suite from the cycle Deuxième récréation de musique d’une exécution facile published by Jean-Marie Leclair, Louis XV’s court composer and famed virtuoso violinist, in 1737.

A challenge to the whimsical instrumental ligature and graceful dance of the baroque master will be the world premiere of Invocation, a duet for two violins, by the contemporary composer Oleksandra Filonenko.

The musicAeterna4 vocal ensemble, established back in 2012 in Perm, specializes in jazz, folk, and contemporary music. With members of the musicAeterna choir they will perform a secular madrigal by the prolific Italian opera composer Alessandro Scarlatti, a liturgical motet by the outstanding 17th-century German master Heinrich Schütz, and Quiet Light (2020), a prayer for five female voices a capella by Oleksandra Filonenko.

Johann Sebastian Bach, with excerpts from his French Suite No. 3 for solo harpsichord, will settle the dispute between old and new music.
