“The music before 1800 speaks, the music afterwards paints”
(Harnoncourt: Musik als Klangrede)
Have you ever had an image pops up in your mind while listening to music?
Have you ever thought about what it’ll look like if you painted it out?
We would like to invite you to the “Atelier” to join and experiment this with us
to transform your feeling and imagination from the music you hear into your “own” painting.
With a program of various symbolic inspirations varying from French poetry, scenes of a summer day in the mountains, the exoticism of Islamic Art, to the Dance of the Goat.
Let’s paint the evening with your own hands and create the colorful night together with us in “Atelier”.
