»Rosary Sonatas I – X – XI by H. I. F. Biber«

A staged concert by Michael Kleine

Date: Sept 4, 2020, 19:30 Uhr

Location: Schloss Chapel Solitude

Visual artist and director Michael Kleine (fellow spatial 2020), together with violinist Eva Saladin, develops a version of the Rosary Sonatas by Heinrich Ignaz Franz Biber. Together with Roman Lemberg at the organ, they will show excerpts of their collaborative work at the Schloss chapel Solitude.

The musical interpretation of the rosary prayer by the baroque violinist H. I. F. Biber is an unusual work from today’s perspective. It follows the form of the prayer rite with very eccentric virtuosity. For this, the violin’s tuning is altered several times by scordaturas. Biber responds to the individual images, which represent important stages in Mary’s life, with musical meditations.

The setting consists of three cycles, the one about the joyful mysteries, the painful ones and the glorious ones. 

Michael Kleine deals with the tradition and performance history of unusual historical works and shows them in a newly designed context.

Due to limited seating, advance reservation is necessary.
