Cen­ten­ni­al­p­re­sents the con­cert Tempi con vari­azioni on Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 17th at 8pm. Vi­o­lin­ist and leader of the Mélosphère En­sem­ble, Hel­mut Lipsky of­fers, with his team of re­puted mu­si­cians, an un­usual pro­gram in­spired by var­i­ous gen­res and eras: so­prano Suzie LeBlanc, dou­ble bassist Jean-François Mar­tel and his Berlin guests: Ste­fan Kling on pi­ano as well as ac­cor­dion­ist To­bias Mor­gen­stern. Highly orig­i­nal com­po­si­tions en­hanced by the mu­sic of sev­eral eras and cul­tures along with jazzy and fan­tasy in­ter­pre­ta­tions of fa­mil­iar clas­si­cal airs, this prom­ises time travel through time and mu­si­cal space.

TheI­tal­ian word tempi (plu­ral of tempo) has mul­ti­ple con­no­ta­tions, many of which are il­lus­trated by the mu­sic of Mélosphère: time; chrono­log­i­cal time; psy­cho­log­i­cal per­cep­tion of the pass­ing of time; pe­ri­ods, epochs and eons; me­te­o­ro­log­i­cal states; vi­tal states and moods; sec­tions and sub­di­vi­sions of works; gram­mat­i­cal tenses (past, present, fu­ture); and, of course, mu­si­cal time as il­lus­trated by tem­pos, mea­sures and time sig­na­tures.

Hel­mut Lipsky de­scribes the ti­tle work, which spans in a fan­tasy-like and whim­si­cal man­ner more than 400 years of mu­sic his­tory: “A mag­i­cal con­cert be­gins, a long time ago, in an old church out­side a small ru­ral vil­lage. The song in­toned is a time­less, an­cient in­can­ta­tion. A stormy wind arises, day fol­lows night, the moon com­pletes its cy­cle, sum­mer turns to au­tumn, years go by, epochs suc­ceed one another and when, at the end, the au­di­ence leaves the church, they are sur­rounded by sky­scrapers...
