Adieu Grand-Duc Jean – 23.04.2020
In order to honor Grand Duke Jean of Luxembourg (05.01.1921 – 23.04.2019) on his first memorial day, David Ianni and his publisher Universal Edition invited musicians to interpret their personal version of David’s ‘Adieu’, a composition that he wrote after the passing of the Grand Duke in late April 2019.
DAVID IANNI “Live aus der Stuff”
ODE TO THE HELPERS • A special work in progress for all the helpers
Ein besonderes Streichquartett für besondere Menschen in surrealen Zeiten: ein Dank an all jene, die uns helfen, diese Krise zu überwinden. „Ode to the Helpers“ besteht aus 4 eigenständigen Solo-Stücken für 4 Solo-Streichinstrumente. Die 4 Kompositionen können beliebig kombiniert – gleichzeitig – gespielt werden, ob 2, 3 oder alle 4 Instrumente zusammen, um so jedes Mal ein neues Stück zu bilden. Der erste Satz für Solo-Bratsche wurde von Ilan Schneider uraufgeführt.
ODE TO THE HELPERS
World premiere of the first movement of David Ianni’s special string quartet “Ode to the Helpers”. This work honors everybody on the planet who helps us to overcome the COVID19 crisis. The composition has four solo movements for the four string instruments, each representing a quality of a good helper: “Focused“, “Calm“, “Loving“ and “Strong“. After the presentation of the solo pieces, these movements are played simultaneously in every possible combination (e.g. alto/cello, violon 1/violin 2/cello etc.) including the four musicians performing their piece at the same time to form the grand final movement of this “Ode to the Helpers”.
Performed live by Ilan Schneider, solo violist of the Orchestre Philharmonique de Luxembourg, on 31th March 2020 in a streaming concert from his living room for the concert series “Live aus der Stuff“ by “Maskénada”, with the support of the Luxembourgish Ministry of Culture.
