Love yet again

(Noch) eine Liebesgeschichte

Q Ensemble Berlin

Love, always love. No concept has been sung about and described more in cultural history. And yet, to this day, love is the phenomenon that we are probably least able to explain. The Q Ensemble Berlin takes the challenges of love as its theme in the music-theatrical concert "Love yet again - (Noch) eine Liebesgeschichte". Here, together with sound artist Alois Späth, the young artists venture into baroque worlds with music by Handel, Vivaldi and Scarlatti, as well as by German composer Andreas Arend.

Part of the program is also the world premiere of "31 or the Power of Love" by the German composer Andreas Arend, who set the first attested poem in the Occident by the Greek poet Sappho to music and incorporated it into a cantata by George Frideric Handel. Sappho's Fragment No. 31 recounts the phenomenon of how love triggers physical impairments and uncontrollable reactions in body and mind. Love has the potential to completely transform our lives, whether in a positive or negative way: whether connection or disconnection. Love is the force that governs human communication.

----
Q Ensemble Berlin was formed in 2019 from an international group of artists* in the inspiring chaos of the German capital. The goal of this diverse group of musicians* from Germany, Chile, Australia and Spain is to combine innovative contemporary explorations with early music. The Q Ensemble aims to expand the conventional concert image by reimagining Baroque masterpieces and combining them with contemporary elements. The ensemble performs on period instruments and combines various art forms in their sound repertoire from early to contemporary music.
