Bach | Scelsi

This programme juxtaposes two spiritual worlds, Western Christianity and Eastern Buddhism, as well as two compositional methods, baroque counterpoint and microtonal writing. Johann Sebastian Bach’s double-choir motets shine in polyphonic splendor; their expressive force, at times tender or playful, at times tormented or exuberant, justly earns them the highest place among the master’s vocal works and puts the singers’ virtuosity to the test. In contrast, Giacinto Scelsi’s “Three sacred songs” are meditative, introverted, and infused with Eastern spirituality. Their microtonal writing invites the listener on a journey into the very interior of the vocal texture itself, and leads through shadowy soundscapes to an unexpected, otherworldly light. The audience will surely be fascinated by the way these diametrically opposed aesthetic approaches interact and enforce each other so effortlessly.
