SCHLOMO MINTZ





"The most ravishingly beautiful playing we mortals can hope to hear ... "
We're looking forward to our cooperation with Shlomo Mintz who charged us to prepare and promote his comeback in western Europe.
There will be the release of a new CD with the solo sonatas by Ysaye and several concert projects, among which a program with violin concertos which Shlomo Mintz will lead from the violin, and a duo recital with pianist Roberto Prosseda with sonatas by Mendelssohn and Franck. 


Aside, there's Mintz' beautiful project
"Violins of Hope", a concert performed on carefully restored iolins which had been found in concentration camps and depopulated ghettos, where they survived their former owners.
" Mintz blew us away with a magnanimous onslaught of violin technique...  we were left breathless, wondering how we could ever listen to a violin in the same way again."
ROBERTO PROSSEDADA

LUCA LOMBARDI



'Freedom' -  at one point that could be the key to his attitude to his art. "
Bálint AndrásVarga

  Presse  &  Video
Lombardis compositions, essais and writings are often motivated by  special aspects, which reach beyond music political, social and philosophical issues and concerns - which he also proposes for discussion in the frame of concert-lectures.

Lombardi already composed 4 operas  and is currently working upon a quite exciting project:  his 5th  opera "OFER" the libretto of which is based upon a novel by Man Booker-Prize winner David Grossmann).

Aside, he's preparing several commissioned symphonic and chamber music compositions for German orchestras and festivals to be premiered in 2018 + 2019.

Neharo't, Neharo't

  Audio
 
Among the many works she composed for great international orchestras and chamber music ensembles, there's the successful original soundtrack for the German silent movie "Der Golem" commissioned by ART WORKs Berlin in 1996 for Giora Feidman and the Arditti String Quartet.

Oliveros soundtrack is also available as independant concert adaptation: the suites f. clarinet and string quartett or string orchestra.
Detailed information and material for both formulas - the silent movie with Olivero's soundtrack and the 2 chamber music versions -  are available at ART WORKs Berlin.


Another of Oliver's works gets an increasing, but deeply sad importance in our period of worldwide wars and struggles and is currently often performed:  "Neharo't, Neharo't
With women in mourning, mothers, widows and sisters who had lost their loved ones, live recorded and woven into the composed music, Olivero gives the suffering of the victims in the battle zones of the world a moving voice.

The shadow which brings dreams, a scenique concert for 2 children choirs and chamber groups, is dedicated to original writings of children who had been deported to Theresienstadt, which, surrounded by death and despair, speak in simple words upon hope and the beauty of the creation.
2018, eigthy years after the pogrom night of November 9, 1938, Olivero sets against one of the darkest periods of human history the spiritual and mental  strength of the victims: a hymn to life.
