Bach, Piazzolla and electronic live sets with Cobblestone Jazz and Jay Medvedeva
The Philharmonie Berlin becomes the center of a unique and unusual concert evening, which combines the religious music of Bach with equally "passionate" world music and synthetic sounds from the club scene, and in this way musically combines the traditional with the new.
Just as innovative as this concert evening is the social work of the Uplift - Aufwind association, to which the proceeds of this concert will help to continue to open up new perspectives for children and families in Central Asia.
The evening will be opened by the passionate actress Martina Gedeck with a reading.
This will be followed by excerpts from Bach's "Art of the Fugue" for string quartet and the aria "Erbarme Dich" from his St. Matthew Passion. How strong Bach's influence was on composers of the tango, such as Piazzolla or Villa Lobos, becomes clear in the compositions selected for the concert evening, which will be interpreted by a tango ensemble, the renowned accordionist Aydar Gaynullin and professional tango dancers.
The music of composers Astor Piazzolla and Carlos Gardel, a song by Italian singer and composer Eldo di Lazzaro and Bachianas Brasileiras No. 5 by Heitor Villa-Lobos will be heard. In the second part of the evening club sounds and spherical sounds fill the hall, creative work of the Canadian trio Cobblestone Jazz (live electronic) and producer Jay Medvedeva (live electronic with violin and piano).
