Nataša Mirković and Michel Godard met for the recording of “En El Amor”, a re-reading of the Sephardic songs that the young singer listened to in Sarajevo, her hometown. A project that has received great acclaim from international critics, especially in Germany.
Today the two musicians continue in the search for the relationship between ancient and contemporary music in an original production of the Festival Fabbrica Europa.
Risplendenti, Riversi combines well-known Italian music of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries (“Se l’aura spira” by Girolamo Frescobaldi and “La suave melodia” by Andrea Falconieri) to Balkan compositions to be rediscovered (such as “Bugarscchica” by the Croatian poet Petar Hektorovic, printed in Venice at the end of the 16th century) which dialogue with the improvisations and compositions of the performers themselves, in a play between ancient and modern.
