CONCERT FOR CHILDREN AND ADULTS
There are few things that express the culture and traditions of a country or region in a more direct and intuitive way than a folk song. In Songs of Travel, recorder virtuoso Stefan Temmingh, oud player Bakr Khleifi, and a group of instrumentalists including students of the Barenboim-Said Akademie and of Temmingh’s own recorder class, embark on a musical journey from Germany to Turkey and all the way to Venezuela. They pass through many landscapes and bring folk songs from different centuries to life in unexpected combinations of sound. The universal language of music tells the story.
