About the event

Under the titleEternity_  The ATLAS vocal ensemble would like to get musically closer to the theme of eternity in 2024 together with the recorder player   Johann Sundermeier and the composer Henning Wölk. The aim is to open up sound spaces from the early baroque to the present. The focus of the concert, in baroque tradition, will be the new composition of a suite for classical recorder, vocal ensemble and electronics. The sentence form of the suite and the recorder, as an instrument usually strongly associated with the Baroque, span the spectrum from the Baroque period to our present, in which we - like Heinrich Schütz and his contemporaries back then - are still asking questions about whether there is such a thing as eternity, where we go after death and what awaits us then. Henning Wölk's composition is intended to provide a current, musical counterpoint to the answers that Heinrich Schütz gave to these questions in his vocal music almost 400 years ago, without the baroque one Losing sight of the reference point. To do this, she uses the voice as a very human means of expression, the recorder as a baroque timbre and electronics as a transfer of sound into the present and combines these sounds into an auditory triptych. Johann Sundermeier incorporates a solo improvisation on a Schütz theme into the program by combining the baroque source material with the musical expressions of modernity, before SWV 281 “Herr, nun lassst you drive your servant in peace,” the   program concludes.
