Bayreuth (D): Duo Sono Eternity – Millenium Charts

13. June 2023

The flute and the drum are among the oldest instruments in history and have been closely linked to human culture for thousands of years. But which melodies actually haunted the minds of people from the past? Starting with minstrel dances that a medieval market visitor might have brought home as a catchy tune along with his shopping, Sophie Schambeck and Sebastian Wielandt build bridges to the 21st century with intermittent “charts”. Among others, Flow my tears by John Dowland, one of the best-known songs from Renaissance England, will be heard, as well as baroque dance movements by Bach. The transition to the 21st century will be concluded by Commentari III for recorder and tape and classics of the solo percussion repertoire such as Interzones for vibraphone and tape

and  “Seuchenklage”, freshly composed for this unusual duo instrumentation, and the original arrangements A Girl in Istanbul or Metamorphosis II by Philip Glass will also be heard for the first time in public in this form worldwide – an invitation to experience centuries of musical history of both instruments true to the original, in transformation and in a completely new form.
