A cello, a piano and eight voices
embody the burning words of
refugees from oppression.
From Britten’s Russian themes
and Anna Akhamtova’s Requiem
surges the resistance of a people.
Entranced by the voice of Nina Simone,
Sonia lends her the voice of her cello.
With the voice of Charlotte Rampling,
metal meets fire : Britten’s suites
meet Plath’s poetry.
A woman alone.
Surrounded by the sea.
The castaways of desire…
The evocative power of voices and
the words of Marguerite Duras.
The tumult of a life sung by three cellos,
via two composers separated by four centuries.
From Monteverdi to the contemporary repertoire,
like one long breath, a journey…
A journey across Mitteleuropa where
cultures fight to save their language.
To Chantal Akerman’s rare
footage from behind the Iron Curtain.
A cycle for cello and piano
inspired by the art of the Hazzans.
