A four-dimensional concert
Magali Léger, Albane Carrère, violin, cello, harpsichord & organ
Originally, a simple idea, to represent the music of the eighteenth century as a 3D object projected on three axes, composers, domains and languages ... On each of them, a binary choice was quickly imposed : Bach / Haendel, sacred / profane, German / Italian. Then a fourth dimension appeared, indispensable as an evidence: the voices! And that's how we put the foundations together to build this duet program for soprano and mezzo-soprano.
From this somewhat cerebral mechanics, based on symmetry and duality, arose the emotion, the mathematical rigor of Bach and Haendel's Italian fantasies, came the moments of grace that compose our concert, the duetti da camera of Haendel, an intimate and so delicate music, or the soprano / viola duets of Bach's cantatas and their supernatural beauty ...
