Baroque works and music from Weil tonight at the “Ohrid Summer”

Ensemble “Maskerina” from France will start at 8 pm and 30 minutes. It will be played by Sebastian Beretta on the baroque flute, Marie Guillaume on viola da gamba and Nicolas Watin at the teorbo.

Maskerina was founded by violinist Guillaume and laureate Nicolas Watin last year during their studies at Versailles. The ensemble unites musicians whose main interest is baroque music. As a duet or a larger ensemble, Maskerina is dedicated to music research on the repertoire of European baroque music from the 17th and 18th centuries, with a special emphasis on the authentic interpretation of original instruments and interaction with the audience.

After the Maserina Concert, at 10 pm, Kabare “Speak quietly” will bring works by composer Kurt Weil.

Cabaret “Speak quietly” is made up of soprano Tijana Djuricic from Serbia, pianist Irina Naumovska from Macedonia and Serbian accordion player Aleksandar Budimir. The cabaret is designed to present all stages of the work of Kurt Weil, with a special emphasis on the works created before the departure from Germany, the works created during their stay in Paris and immediately after coming to America. Transparently thematic, stylish and harmonious, intertextual overlaps are noted on everything that Wail would call “life” for 60 minutes. Wile is one of the most important composers of music for a scene of the last century. He was born in Germany, but spent most of his life in the United States. His authorial opus includes numerous musicals, operas, operettas, cabarets, especially those who collaborate with Bertolt Brecht. Wile had full control over the dramatic structure of his works and thus increased the strength and social significance of the music he composed. The open questions of the ideologies, politics and the power of music seem to be obsessed with daily. The composer never forgot his roots and, unlike many other immigrants who fought to conceal Jewish origins, he was one of the first to pay attention to the Holocaust and the necessity of raising public awareness of the suffering of European Jews.
