Together with musicians Sebastain Berweck, Erik Drescher and Biliana Voutchkova, Neue Vocalsolisten Stuttgart will play and sing pieces by Eastern European composers, which serve to create a mythology and language if its own: In his Sybilla, Lithuanian ultra-minimalist Rytis Mažulis (1961) looks at Titus Petronius, the author of the Satyricon; Oleg Krokhalev explores the secret signs of the “musical” thirteenth chapter of Joyce’s Ulysses, while singer and composer Agata Zubel creates her own (cryptic) language in Madrigal.
In Davor Branimir Vincze’s E, elements of the baroque clash with Balkan folklore and quasi-improvised song, and Ondřej Adámek’s composition speaks a language that incorporates the musical elements of distant cultures, allowing an extraordinary story to emerge.
