Sound Encounters with Graeco-latin antiquity
Camerata Antonio Soler & Abraham Cupeiro
About the project
Camerata Antonio Soler presents a unique project along with Abraham Cuperio, consisting of the superb combination of a modern orchestra with 2000 year old instruments from the Celts and Romans.
Abraham Cupeiro, master of “forgotten sounds”, praised by the audience in Spain and abroad, will play the karnix and the cornu with a string orchestra (12 plus percussion), a series of works written by well-known composers on purpose for this event, to create a sort of Graeco-latin Ancient Sounds Encounters. Thus, over 2000 years of major European cultures history will merge in one single act.
New compositions will combine with others from our standard repertoire, with nuances and inspirations from the afore said Celt and Roman cultures. The special circumstance occurs that most of the pieces were composed during lockdown period (March-June, 2020).
Ultimately, an original and attractive project that will allow us to wander among suggesting sound encounters from present and past, ancient and modern cultural identities merged in one act. A travel in time which surprisingly will erase time barriers by means of the music.
The Concert-World Première of the Project was given on July 18th 2020 in San Lorenzo de El Escorial (Madrid, Spain) and was dedicated to the victims of COVID-19.
