Dear friends of music and art,
On December 14, 2019, Sue Schlotte (cello) and Luis Berra (piano) played for the first time in the Musikstudio, while presenting works by Beethoven, but especially their self-composed works. This heralded the finissage of the wonderful exhibition “Watching and Listening” by Victor Shtivelberg, which delighted visitors and the press.
An ensemble of piano and cello has already been heard several times in the Musikstudio, but the jazzy compositions and improvisations of the two musicians were a novelty here, which I wholeheartedly would like to recommend!
The musicians managed to wrap the studio in a true soundscape with only two instruments, which were supplemented in some places with vocals by Sue Schlotte. The sometimes contemplative mood up to the thrilling flood of emotions captivated the listeners without exception, which is undoubtedly due to the masterful interplay of the two musicians, who truly merged with their instruments.
I would therefore like to thank these two musicians, the artist Victor and his wife Ninelle Shtivelberg and, of course, the great audience from the bottom of my heart for this worthy conclusion to a glamorous exhibition and an exciting year!
Dear music lovers,
Now the year is almost over and the finissage of the exhibition “Watching and Listening” by Victor Shtivelberg is just around the corner. Cellist Sue Schlotte and pianist Luis Berra have come up with a very special program:
With the compositions “Ancestral Dances“, which were released on CD in 2018, the pianist Luis Berra has created a touching, wildly delicate music. It forms the starting point in this concert. The cellist Sue Schlotte immerses herself in the sounds with her cello. Warm tones close to the voice join the piano sounds. A dialogue begins. Unknown may arise: in the sense of Ludwig van Beethoven:
” … freedom alone, going on in the art world, as in the whole great creation purpose …” Suddenly Beethoven’s music resounds: movements of the Sonata in A major for cello and piano. What happens next remains open – a journey into the unexpected, to which the two musicians invite their audience.
