BACH INTERMINATA is a new performance work by Burak Özdemir and Musica Sequenza, that combines music of Johann Sebastian Bach with the historic music of the Mediterranean countries in an innovative way. An inter-cultural and exotic Pasticcio program, that brings together the cultural heritage of Bach and the coastal regions from Spain to Israel with such unique timbres.
The project is based on powerful rhythms, extravagant colors and unheard melodies from 10 Mediterranean countries, from Nord Africa, Europe and the Middle East.
With BACH INTERMINATA we get to hear how Mediterranean Sea provides the bridges for these extremely lavish, vivid and various sounds to interact with another for more than 12 centuries, as well as with the divine compositions of Johann Sebastian.
The project unites us on a universal understanding of cultural richness and authenticity of folks-music of the sea ports, where people with different cultural backgrounds connect and celebrate the diversity of life.
The performance duration is 70 minutes without intermission.
