2020 – an extraordinary year
2020 was a challenging year for all of us. Especially in times like these, however, preserving the arts is necessary, as they provide us with perspective, support us and enable communication. They also teach us humanity and bring us closer together.
It was important to us to stay active in these times and show how artists and the cultural scene at large are doing at the moment. That’s why we created the video. For the first time ever, we present our music visually and thereby bring baroque music to the present.
Because if live isn’t possible – we go digital!
Light and shadow
François Couperin’s music has been part of our repertoire since the beginning of 2020. It’s been of great mental support to us throughout this year.
The piece we selected is multifaceted and symbolises this year for us. The visuals confront us with truths and unsettle us, but equally radiate peace and reward us with pleasant moments, too. Light and shadow are in direct contrast.
All this is captivated by Couperin’s music and impressively presented by actor Florian-Raphael Schwarz and our violist Maria Danneberg.
