Patricia Kopatchinskaja. CAMERATA BERN
"Is exile pain and isolation or also a source of inspiration?" The exceptional Moldavian violinist Patricia Kopatchinskaja asks herself this question and gives the answer herself: "What remains for composers, for us musicians, for us human beings, is the exile into art, into the unspeakable of music, which eludes any conceptualization." Together with the CAMERATA BERN, she follows folkloristic traces and takes a look at interesting Eastern European composers such as Ivan Wyschnegradsky, who works with quarter tones, the polystylist Alfred Schnittke or the Pole Andrzey Panufnik, who wrote his violin concerto for Yehudi Menuhin in 1971. With a new work by Alexey Retinsky, who lives in exile in Vienna, they try to make music serve memory.
Followed by artist talk with Anselm Cybinski in the Festivalzentrum
