Boulder Bach Festival Aequora: Mystery Sonata Performs New Music From Iceland

$30 – $65


AEQUORA: the vast and calm surface of the open sea

Icelandic composers Anna Thorvaldsdottir, Pall Ragnar Palsson, Daniel Bjarnason, and long-time Sigur Rós collaborator Maria Huld Markan Sigfusdottir create new worlds in sound, traveling beyond tradition and academic expectations in their art form. This performance features new work, much of which was composed specifically for the duo Mystery Sonata, comprised of pianist Mina Gajić and violinist Zachary Carrettin. Projections of Iceland’s natural beauty offer a visual context while sonic landscapes ebb and flow, utilizing contemporary techniques that explore harmonics, timbre, and the resonating structure of the piano. One of the works includes ambient electronica that interplays with the piano and violin, culminating in a heart wrenching melody that somehow exists beyond time and place, beyond pulse and tempo.

“Immediately apparent is the duo’s uncanny unity of phrasing…Carrettín and Gajić share the same sense of propulsion, giving their playing a lean power and an extra glimmer of energy…daring virtuosity…they partner brilliantly…”
-Early Music America
