live it shower of snow fall apart start off could be for you. the greek russian conductor the turtle corrects his divides opinion in the world of classical music some call him the savior of classical music in the twenty first century others are disturbed by his musical showmanship considering it overdone too much for the concert hall they say well over the weekend he gave a much anticipated performance of barry's requiem with his own music a tanna in the milan church where it originally had its premiere way back in one thousand nine hundred eighty four. yet. i. need to be recognizable the passage d.s.e. re the day of wrath one of the climaxes intercept a very nice requiem mass conducted sale jokerman says on the orchestra music
a chant of the touring here are one hundred eighty musicians fifteen concerts but this venue stands out milan's on marco church where bass requiem was first performed this is a very very special very. basic of the records of a concert. but is done for different purposes. so this plays give us the opportunity to. finding again true purpose or. secrets of music. and to get connected to this music in different way sanmarco church first mentioned in the year twelve fifty four martin luther was here and so was mozart illustrious guests fantastic acoustics it was here that the premier of his requiem dedicated to his late friend the poet and it's. a month sony
first performed on may twenty second eight hundred seventy four a year after months of nice death. by definition a requiem is meant for the songs of the deceased nowadays this one is rarely played at funerals often in concert hall. everything is so good the dramatic the intensity of the stage cannot without speaking to the costumes and the action is a universal. action and universal drama is the drama. in front of best. it's a drama that conducted this stage is exquisitely born in athens educated in st petersburg he founded the orchestra music attorney in two thousand
feet before being named the director of the state oprah in russia the forty seven year old is a perfectionist he pushes his musicians to the edge of their abilities. he's a genius meaning that he is totally in the music he's completely enfold in what he's doing and for me the genius is this person who is what he explores what he magnifies and for me to is really this he's the incarnation of music. live it and the final movement of the requiem after ninety minutes of emotional ups and downs betty's piece result that resonates long after.
and i'm joined by another. musician a completely different musician jato welcome to the show. a multi instrumentalist you play completely different music you're also an artist on your latest album which is called deliverance is often if i say you're collaborate you've collaborated in your career with so many different people this is the only the second solo album so did you feel. no i actually enjoyed it i mean the nice thing about music is to collaborate with people but then once in a while you have the feeling you want to say something which only you really can say so that was a lot of fun well i mean i'm hoping they're going to play play a little bit of your music now we can talk. do you have is there anything specific about this album that's very different from what's come before i had a lot of spoken words it is a lot about how i feel about current times and i suddenly had
a lot to say i didn't expect it but while i was writing it suddenly i had very long lengthy things to say and that's different than the one before because it was more instrumental ok now that's your latest music let's have a look back at your your illustrious career as i guess i would say doyin of the old sort of music save here and. we begin with the album before this which actually took you away from the city to your original home in america. loves adventure after her last album she and musician husband alexander gave up their home and belongings and hit the road on tour taking only what would fit in their suitcase. that album was called tacoma named for her hometown in the u.s. state of washington. since the nineteen eighties though brian. it has been
different shows big she helped shape the city's world famous club scene making ends meet with their art and clothing designs. in the ninety's she launched a music career as the lead singer of the band space cowboys and she met her husband the bassist of the equally experimental band and she doesn't know about. jay and her solo work there's no resemblance to her ninety's she says her unconventional sound is inspired by the italian composer and your own. caravan and you don't know whether you were living in it but you actually did you really you know husband decided sort of up sticks get rid of everything yeah and
start again i mean did you really do that yes we did have nowhere to go so well we did have places to go because we were always touring and so we basically gave everything up so we didn't have a case to go back to so we were touring the world to see if we could find a place that would be perfect for artists did you find. not yet. this many beautiful places but. yes yes we've noticed that berlin does have something very special for artists and we thought maybe it's important for us to help keep that up yeah yeah yeah well you need to do i said doran of the alternative scene here it was actually you along with dr mater who invented the. the biggest techno party of the world the love parade of course back in one thousand nine hundred nine. few friends.
allegedly a birthday party hundred fifty people but in eight years it became a million people on the streets of berlin why do you think it took off like that and such i think it was a magical moment that nobody expected so many things came together the fall of the wall the beginning of a new music the beginning of new technologies and the change of a city that we by chance did something that spoke to very very many people including specifically east germans that were experiencing a new upheaval and techno was a music with no heroes and that of course was perfect for that era and so we didn't expect it to happen we were surprised as everybody else but of course we were very happy that our vision of music being able to fly over walls and that art cannot be confined in any way became true in this magical way that so many people said we
agree that's so true that techno has no heroes you know they can everybody can relate your new album deliverance now you say it's speaks of the world from an eagles for specter do you like what you see. there is many things that are very difficult but in their hand i've been touring now for almost eight years nonstop in very many continents and countries and basically i've i've seen very very many nice and wonderful things and people realize that we all as a species do have a great heart and that we just have to remember that maybe more often an album of all to ms and hopefully yes yeah i guess so it's got a little bit of depression in it too good mixture of but the last song is a very optimistic view of the job so i hope i pronounce the both. very much. thank you for being with us and good luck with the album deliverance and it's on
the lounge of the war label yes sourav a lot about thank you thank you. now in our series one hundred must reads we come to a relatively recently published book that has become a classic of new german literature a post all of the leavitt shot off came out ten years ago it's a strange tale of two sisters who take a trip to their father's homeland bugg area accompanied by their father's ashes and there's a lot of black humor in that to his all resident but when david leavitt's to explain will. family vacation is so stressful especially when one of you is just been dug up from underground and the other one won't stop playing. the father in the bit in the novel apostle has been buried in germany for decades until an old friend decides to have his urn and the urns of
a bunch of other people brought back to their homeland borg area the man's two daughters joined the mass funeral procession of nineteen hearses. for the sisters it's a chance to discover their roots but as far as they're concerned the roots are rocking they call book areas the landscape filthy the buildings hideous and the people there seems to be only one code available for each of the sexes the women signalize we are whores and the men we are brutal we haven't come across one dressed woman or one man and a suit on the entire trip author's ability child own father was from bulgaria and like the father in her book he hanged himself when she was young. as her final reckoning with her father's death and his country read it only if you have a strong taste for black humor.
