Just like a stranger with the weeds in your hearts (Tom Waits)
Dreaming beyond time: the musical contemplation of an irretrievably lost world. John Dowland’s variations on Lachrimae Pavan will be used as the seeds that sometimes represent breathing, sometimes irritation. This “renaissance of empty spaces” seems archaic and rough, but also unabshedly present, a soundscape which stimulates reflection and immersion.
Helmut Jasbar forms a trio with the sensitive percussionist Judith Schwarz and the hurdy-gurdy player Matthias Loibner, who in a certain way reinvented this instrument single-handedly. “A renaissance for an instrument of melancholy magic”, New York Times writes about Loibner.
