Les Odyssée de l’Inde (The Odyssey in India): Classical Cello music by Sonia Wieder-Atherton
24 November, 6.30pm @ Vyloppilli Samskriti Bhavan.
Sonia Weider-Atherton is today’s most gifted and well-known French cellist. Following her Mediterranean Odyssey, Sonia Wieder-Atherton now brings her talent and creativity to India. Absorbing a landscape of sounds recorded in situ into her performance of classical pieces, she explores the question of how the world resonates in music.
“I don’t know India, but I dream of discovering it, travelling to itsdifferent cities and regions, meeting people, taking time with them to share my Odyssey, recording sounds together, then incorporating this raw material into the Odyssey and its soundtrack.
Each performance would thus become the home of its own Odyssey: the Odyssey for that place and those people. My wish is for the sounds, narratives, songs, all the things that I cannot yet imagine, to take their place in my odyssey and meet the voice of my cello.”
In addition, John Anthony ( Karnatrix) and Akhil J Chand will join this Indian Odyssey in Trivandrum.
