Poesie hinter Gefängnismauern

Although Teodor Currentzis and his orchestra musicAeterna are normally associated with their creative performances of Early music, on this evening they present a contemporary work. And with good reason. In Tristia for choir and ensemble, the composer Philippe Hersant has set the poems of French and Russian prisoners in a disturbing and at the same time moving way. “It’s about the monotony of prison life, about poetry and strong language,” says the composer.
