Jenny Bliss & Yair Avidor - evening concert Live Music & Concerts

jenny_bliss__yair_avidor__evening_concert


Performance of 17th C violin virtuoso Biber's works from Mystery Sonatas, also composition by late local composer Stanley Messenger.

Jenny Bliss and Yair Avidor will be rounding up this summer’s exhibition with a profound musical experience.
This "magical chemistry" (Handel House Museum') will perform sonatas by the 17th Century Rosicrucian Mystic and violin virtuoso Heinrich Biber including the Crucifixion and the Resurrection Sonatas from his collection of Mystery Sonatas.

In the Resurrection Sonata the violin tuning is transformed by swapping over the middle 2 strings making the shape of a cross. In the words of Nigel Kennedy ' Imaginative....Jenny has an affinity for Biber'.

They will also perform the late Glastonbury based composer Stanley Messenger's moving alchemical song 'October' in an arrangement for early instruments and voice and a premiere of a work by Jenny which uses the positions of the planets and stars at the time of this concert encoded into musical notation, thereby creating a new music of the spheres.
Tickets £15
