Duets from thousand years of musical history for young people from 0-100 years. «Consider everything an experiment.(...)One shouldn‘t go to the woods looking for something, but rather to see what is there. (...)Wherever we are, what we hear is mostly noise. When we ignore it, it disturbs us. When we listen to it, we ﬁnd it fascinating» (John Cage)
Over the past few years, Patricia Kopatchinskaja has exploded the norms of the classical violin. Her highly personal – even extreme – interpretations of the great classics leave no one indifferent and fascinate the public, which adores her generosity and commitment on the concert platform, her taste for new musical creations and pieces from off the beaten track.
Now the barefoot violinist invites us to join her in a unique musical experience that mixes composers of the seventeenth (and even the eleventh!) century with living composers, a clarinettist playing the ocarina, an improvisatory harpsichordist, an electro musician, a toy piano . . .
Here is Patricia Kopatchinskaja totally at liberty, playing, singing, dialoguing with her musician friends, but also with her daughter Alice, in a CD-book that tells the story of this utterly crazy recording with the help of a rich selection of photos by Marco Borggreve. ‘Free imagination, without constraints or rules’: the word ‘Fantasy’ finds its ideal musical illustration with Take Two!
Alice: Music is like a story but without words. You can paint your own pictures in your head... well, there is also boring music.
Pat: What is boring music for you ?
Alice: If it sounds like this: wäh wäh wäh wäh wäh wäh
Pat: And what is interesting music?
Alice: If it sounds like this: pam pam pam pam
