Kammermusik-Matinee 04. Feb 2024

"In the River" is the theme of the chamber music matinees this season. In keeping with this, our musicians around Haika Lübcke have put together a programme in which water flows through the entire programme. In "Voyage au Pays du Tendre", Gabriel Pierné was inspired by Madame de Scudéry's "Carte du Tendre". This metaphysical map is about the true nature of love and affection, represented by two rivers. In Toru Takemitsu's "And then I knew 'twas Wind", the air current flows, both in the natural world and in the soul, a world of the unconscious. According to Greek legend, Daniel Schnyder has "Marsyas and Apollo" play music together in a contest that ends with the satyr being hung on a spruce tree by the winner, Apollo, so that his blood becomes the river Marsyas. Water also plays a special role for the composer of the last work, who wrote his quintet for the delicate instrumentation of harp, flute and string trio: Jean Cras had risen to the rank of rear admiral in the French navy. He always carried a piano on board his ships to "obey an inner voice" that inspired him to compose.
