Invariants – Bach, Takemitsu, Levinas

Due to weather and rain conditions, the originally scheduled programme, Xenakis’ Persephassa, cannot be performed.
This programme is replaced by Invariants, a programme for a trio of musicians playing percussion keyboards. Interspersed between three Trio Sonatas for Organ by Johann-Sebastian BACH, Rain Tree (1981) by Tōru TAKEMITSU and Les Invariants (2021) by Michaël LEVINAS take the German composer’s works back and forth in time.
Several centuries after their composition, these sonatas continue to adapt to their time without losing their essence, and the presence of works from our own time reminds us that Johann Sebastian Bach remains very much alive.

Outdoor concert – 8.30pm
