Contemporary Music at Inhotim

Contemporary Music at Inhotim

This coming Sunday, 10/19, the 2014 Inhotim em Cena project closes its program with the Contemporary Music Series. In this fourth edition, joined by American singer Martha Herr, the Minas Gerais group Sonante 21 will perform the play Pierrot Lunaire, one of the most influential works of music in the 20th century. The concert will also premiere a composition by Minas-born artist Rogério Vasconcelos, made especially for Inhotim.

Written in 1912 by Arnold Schoenberg, Pierrot Lunaire comprises three sets of seven songs, based on poems by Belgian poet Albert Giraud and translated into German. The composition has an atonal and expressionistic character and uses sprechstimme, intermediate vocal technique between singing and speaking.

Sonante 21

Created in 2009 by musician Fernando Rocha, the Minas Gerais group is dedicated to studying and performing chamber pieces by contemporary composers, with emphasis on Brazilian compositions from the second half of the 20th century and 21st century. The following artists will take part in this performance: Guida Borghoff (piano), Rommel Fernandes (violin), Elise Pittenger (cello), Maurício Freire (flute) and Alexandre Silva (clarinet).

Inhotim em Cena is brought to you by Pirelli, sponsored by Correios, supported by Saritur, and relies on the participation of Fundação Clóvis Salgado and Media partnership by Sou BH.
