Age of Passion

Lachrimae-Tango for Viols & Bandoneon

In “AGE OF PASSION – Lachrimae-Tango for viols & bandoneon“, the viola da gamba and bandoneon, celebrated instruments of the 17th and 20th centuries, join in 21st century sound for the first time, allowing a new take through contemporary composition on the much-investigated musical theme of passion.
The focus is on the LACHRIMAE by John Dowland, published in London in 1604 and the undisputed crown of all creations for the viol consort.
The music of the bandoneon, inextricably linked with the tango music of the early 20th century, also tells of passion.
Especially for this project, the New York composer Reiko Füting has composed a contemporary piece for gamba consort and bandoneon, which in Füting's musical language reflects the LACHRIMAE by John Dowland.
AGE OF PASSION shows in a beguilingly sensual way how coherently the different musical languages interlock with each other with all their multifaceted colors when it comes to the age-old human theme: passion.
