Our last soirée was absolutely breathtaking! Violist Victor de Almeida and Pianist Mikael Oganes delighted us with their own version of Stravinsky’s “Rite of Spring” in its entirety. The energy was so high that the audience was electrified. Adapting such an emblematic piece of the classical repertoire for Viola & Piano is not as easy task, and our duo has been working on it for almost a decade and, in their own words, they “still keep tweaking things here and there.” The result was a memorable experience for all the lucky attendants.
To top it off, Artist Guillermo Bert exhibited works from his hugely successful Bar code series, blurring the boundary between cultures and commodities. He also showed a video of his upcoming project combining generations-old weaving techniques by the Mapuche Indians, into textiles that resemble patterns of bar codes.
