Baroq’eMotion  European Day of Early Music

Baroq’eMotion European Day of Early Music

We invite you to a special concert on 21 March 2018 at 19 o’clock in the „Csíki Mozi” Movie saal in Miercurea Ciuc.

The Miercurea Ciuc Early Music Festival is taking part from the EDEM European Day of Early Music second time.

In the frame of this concert we will present the harpsichord belonging to the Festival thanks to the generous donation from Regina Härdi from Switzerland with the help of Mária Fülöp, harpsichord teacher. The musical instrument was built by the dutch master G. C. Kolp in 1980.

The concert will be broadcast live on Facebook.

Baroq’eMotion transcends the artistic refinement of the 17th and 18th man into contemporaneity and overpasses it onto the “technical evolution” of the 21st century. It is a strange combination between conformism and non-conformism, the elegance of the costumes and the sophisticated perfumes from hundreds of years ago, replaced nowadays by the casual and comfortable style worn by people who are always on the run, who always “communicate” in just a couple of seconds over thousands of miles.

The Early music, performed on harpsichord, accompanies the dance the entire show and the choreographies are inspired from the age of the musical Baroque and from the contemporary dance. The contemporary dance on Early music is the one that establishes the connection between the two completely different worlds and everything is even more original as the production of the show proposes an ancestry of technical contemporary methods.

The show is divided into three parts: the first part is set on music from the creation of the French school of harpsichord, greatly adapted to baroque dance sequences. The second part of the show brings forth a paradoxical combination between the formal structures of a fugue by Bach and the complete freedom of the contemporary dance. The show ends with a spectacular fandango from the Spanish creation for the harpsichord.
