Soprano Joanna Freszel, contemporary music ensemble Hashtag Ensemble, director Pia Partum and video artist Aleksandra Ołdak joined forces in the preparation of an unusual video-clip or video-opera to the music of Salvatore Sciarrino.
Already on October 30, at 22:15 on the Hashtag Ensemble youtube channel and Facebook channels: ours and the Hashtag Ensemble team you will be able to watch the effect of this extraordinary cooperation.
Although the music recordings took place already in July, the work lasted until the end of October. Editing and mastering of the sound material (Michał Bereza), then recordings of the visual layer and its final editing took place made our autumn, although pandemic, unusual and busy!
Salvatore Sciarrino’s music has been a field of cooperation between conductor Lilianna Krych and director Pia Partum for several years – its ethereality, extremely precise form and sophistication inspired both artists to realize the m.in opera “Luci mie traditrici” during the Warsaw Autumn Festival 2016 and New Opera Days Ostrava 2018.
We are looking forward to the reaction of the audience and – although online – we are counting on a warm reception!
