Eßlinger ZeitungAbout the première of Incantesimi di MerseburgKammerchor StuttgartFrieder Bernius, conductor25.02.2020And when else do you hear clusters of such density, sensuality and precision? In Alessio Elia's premiered "Incantesimi di Merseburg" - settings of two late pagan spells - everything is required together in the almost absurd extreme. Elia combines up to seven different tuning systems (such as well-tempered, pure or meantone tuning), even for the highly trained soloists this can only be managed with special tuning forks. The result is iridescent complexes of sound, persistent agglomerations, evocative and surreal: truly a magic of the inner transformation of the sounds.© Martin Mezger - Esslinger Zeitung
