Excerpts from Telemann’s, Pisendel’s, Bach’s and Biber’s works for the solo violin
Featuring: Iskandar Widjaja – hegedű, Bernhard Rasinger – szintetizátor, lézer
Curator: Andreas Vierziger
The baroque violin meets digital technology and laser. Iskandar Widjaja, a charismatic violinist, and Bernhard Rasinger, an Austrian musician and visual artist make masterpieces of the baroque period as well as sounds produced by a modular synthesizer visible by using high performance laser technology.
The violin and the synthesizer are connected to a laser device that transforms the musical impulses into visible figures. The abstract and organic forms, along with the special colour effects, reveal the structure of the compositions in sensual ways. This breathtaking production, which opens new possibilities in how music is perceived and performed, would have been unthinkable not only for Bach, but even for contemporary man a few years ago. Iskandar Widjaja is one of the most creative and exhilarating artists of the new generation of violinists.
This concert of the Budapest Spring Festival is presented by Budapest Festival and Tourism Centre.
