Goldberg Variations – Urban Strings

24.9.2019, 20:00

The cycle was originally intended as a harpsichord composition for baroque music-making in small spaces before it established itself in the world’s concert halls as a mainstay of the repertoire for famous pianists. In their project Urban Strings aim to rediscover the work’s intimacy, transparency and directness by using baroque violin, baroque viola, harpsichord and organ in an unusual ensemble cast. This will be augmented by the subtle use of selective amplification and by working with soundscapes, lighting and video installation. In this way the audience becomes a seeing and hearing part of the ensemble instead of remaining distant acoustic observers.
