Flow my tears

The search for traces in the history of music and what still urges expression in musical atavisms will be illuminated in this programme. The Mondrian Ensemble has put together a programme that makes cross-connections, preferences and passions of composers audible and opens up insights into the history of musical craft.
Roland Moser, whose compositions are often based on historical genres or individual works, has written a paraphrase to the Adagio KV 7 by the seven-year-old Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Benjamin Britten was fascinated by the old English songs and refers in his composition «Lachrymae» to the songs «Flow my Tears» and «If my Complaints could Passions move» by John Dowland. Martin Jaggi, who studied with Detlev Müller-Siemens in Basel, often goes on a different kind of search for traces in his compositional work and finds his inspiration in nature, archaeology, the history of civilisation and ethnology.
