Simon Christensen in musical dialogue with the Italian Baroque

During the Golden Days Festival, which this year bears the title “Important Shit”, Simon Christensen and Peter Morrison perform his recomposition of early Italian Baroque composer Giulio Caccini’s “Six Monodies”

Simon Christensen, who himself will perform on percussion, Zither and electronics has the following to say about the music:

“With “Caccini Monodies” I've been faithful to the original melodies and the basso continuo-part. My artistic aim has been to create an intertwined piece of beautiful, wordless melodies with a different, cool sound. A symbiosis of old and new.”

Mono Duo will perform the piece at Osramhuset in Copenhagen on 4 September at 8 PM.
