Dan Laurin (recorder / on video)

Anna Paradiso (harpsichord / on video)

Programme:
Tulve. “Was It Light?” (premiere)
Music from the Middle Ages to the present on acoustic and electronic musical instruments

The Bright Future Ensemble binds together sound colors that have never sounded in this combination before – harpsichord, Estonian harp, recorder, and analog synthesizers.

NB!
However, the coronavirus has disrupted the plans of many people and that is why the concert of the Swedish-Estonian ensemble cannot take place as previously planned. Tonight, Swedish musicians Dan Laurin and Anna Paradiso will participate in the world premiere of Helena Tulve’s work in a video and Estonian musicians as live performers.

The rest of the concert will be presented by duo Anna-Liisa Eller / Taavi Kerikmäe.

The duo’s musicians share their passion of early and contemporary music. But can the worlds divided by centuries be connected at all? According to Anna-Liisa and Taavi, it is all about the forest of sounds – a living landscape in which both ancient trees and emerging plants live. Hundred-year-old and one-day-old living beings, thorny, soft, fragrant, scratching, brightly coloured, fragile and intertwined. The sounds interact with us and we interact with sounds.

Sat, 29 August at 9 pm Kai Art Center
