Antoine Tamestit & Cédric Tiberghien

Sat 9. 4. 2022

Afterwards: TREFF | PUNKT for members of the Freundeskreis at the Festival Zentrum in the court yard of Neue Universität

Strictly speaking, Bach's viola da gamba sonatas were a futile labor of love, for the instrument was already going out of fashion at the time. Violists like Heidelberger Frühling's longtime companion Antoine Tamestit annex and rescue this music. Brahms' Sonata from his late chamber music work then involves him and his duo partner Cédric Tiberghien in wistful-passionate to high-spirited-humorous dialogues. But what would the repertoire for the viola be without composing viola virtuosos like the British Rebecca Clarke? Clarke's monumental 1919 sonata echoes the harmony and melody of Debussy, who influenced her, and prefaces it with a poem by the Frenchman Alfred de Musset.
