The band SPARK presents Johann Sebastian Bach, Antonio Vivaldi, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and more in a new way, bringing together classical and modern music. The result is a fascinating sound universe that is accessible to all audiences and also characterized by a thoroughly modern tonality. The ensemble’s five musicians understand themselves as artists who have constructed their own creative profile.
The program “Closer to Paradise” is a collaboration between SPARK and the world-famous countertenor Valer Sabadus, corresponding with the 2019/20 season’s themes of “Gender Revolution” and “Identities” in multiple respects. The countertenor’s vocal range plays with notions of gender, and the performances by SPARK also defy traditional categories in the music scene.
