Julia Kursawe | Irene Cortina González

Minimal music and the splendour of baroque music seem to be diametrically opposed. Nevertheless, the artists Julia Kursawe and Irene Cortina Gonzáles dare to take a closer look. They juxtapose the compositions "Songs and Poems" by Philip Glass and "Capricci for Cello solo" by Joseph M.C.F. Dall'Abaco and discover connecting elements in both styles. Patterns emerge from mostly simple, repetitive motifs, which do not shape the music through extreme contrasts or development but through a continuum. The suite MINIMALE develops into a suite, as it was already common 350 years ago, but with the content of contemporary and baroque compositions for cello solo. This is reinforced by the translation of the musical movement language into modern dance.
