Alexej Gerasimez and friends
World-class percussionist Alexej Gerassimez, a longtime companion of Heidelberger Frühling, is on the trail of nature's elemental forces in his current project, along with three percussionist friends and his brother Nicolai on piano. His own "Suite of Elements" brings water, wood, stone, metal and fur to sound one after the other. A meditation on the eternal cycle of becoming and passing away is formed in between by the "Canto Ostinato" by Simeon ten Holt, one of the most popular works of minimal music from the Netherlands. Originally written for an unspecified number of keyboard instruments, this ostinato chant is here sung by four mallet instruments, also called mallet instruments, and piano.
Followed by artist talk with Anselm Cybinski in the Festivalzentrum
