NOTE THE CHANGED DATE!
Recorder quartet Bravade take us on a lyrical journey from medieval monasteries to today, while combining familiar Christmas carols and musical treasures that suit the holiday season. We approach the core repertoire of the ensemble, whose specialty is Renaissance recorders, from the female composer's perspective as we encounter music by Hildegard von Bingen as well as Vittoria Aleotti and Maddalena Casulana.
Renaissance recorders can easily play organ music – the majority of organ pipes are in fact flue pipes, in which the sound is produced the same way as in a recorder. Now we can hear these "human organs" play e.g. the well-known chorale from Bach's Christmas Oratorio.
Bravade is not restricted to old music, but it eagerly explores contemporary music. Da pacem Domine by Arvo Pärt offers a moment of pause in the concert. It is based on a Gregorian melody and written after the Madrid bombings in 2004. Bravade also premieres a lot, and in this concert, we will experience a new piece written for Bravade by German-Finnish Sid Hille, in which the Baroque counterpoint is combined with jazz and blues influences.
