The poetry of great poets such as Rumi and Hafis
Mulo Francel, saxophonist of the acclaimed world music band Quadro Nuevo, improvises on the icons of European music: Handel, Bach, Schubert, Caccini, Satie. Together with the sensitive pianist Nicole Heartseeker, the melodies will be atmospherically juxtaposed with Persian poetry. This creates a sensual access to the flowery-mystical language of Persian poetry and its powerful images.
Here, styles are mixed, millennia are overcome, cultures are united, old masters are rejuvenated and new sound images are conjured up - beyond conventional patterns and classical pigeonholing, floating in space and time.
The selected texts are by the early Iranian poets Hafis (1317-1390) and Rumi
(1207-1273), but also by artists of our time such as Sohrab Sepehri (1928-1980), Ahmad Shamlou 'Bamdad' (1925-2000) and Huschang Ebtehadsch 'Sayeh' (b. 1928), who now lives in Cologne.
