Venice: Water Postcards

Sat 23. 4. 2022

Venice as a resonating instrument? Even as a child, composer Andrea Liberovici felt that the city, built on wooden stilts, was a huge resonating body. A conversation with architect Renzo Piano about Venice's very own sound brought back those memories and inspired him to write his new work. In »Venice Water Postcards« which will premiere in Heidelberg, he will play this instrument: In Venetian mosaic style, he assembles sounds recorded in the »calli« with live sounds from the Quartetto Prometeo. Benjamin Britten's String Quartet No. 3 is also a musical postcard from Venice: in it he quotes from his opera »Death in Venice«. And he titles one movement with Venice's nickname from ancient times: »La Serenissima« (The Most Serene).

Concert with intermission
