François Sarhan's cinema at the Warsaw Autumn and Musica Strasbourg
The new musical performance The Right Ear by French composer François Sarhan, performed by the German Ensemble Garage, has its premiere at the Warsaw Autumn (25.09) and Musica Strasbourg (29.09) festivals. The streaming of the world premiere is availble on Warsaw Autumn's YouTube channel.
What an eruption of the imagination, and audiovisual art, and what a lace job it is to combine it all. It is impossible to describe. The performance merges various elements, previously filmed and recorded with those created live, not only in terms of sound, but also in visuals - the author constructs the entire set, a bit like a dollhouse, where a live camera was operated. Unusual. And when it comes to the content - something from the most beautiful tradition of French Surrealism. One of the most important events of this year's festival. Whoever has not seen should regret it. - reported Dorota Szwarcman, a Polish classical music critic from "Polityka" weekly.
The work was co-produced by the Warsaw Autumn and Musica Strasbourg. The partners of the events are: Impuls neue Musik, The Ministry of Culture and Science of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia, the Foundation for Polish-German Cooperation and the Goethe-Institut. SONORA coordinates production and presentations.
