Concert program
Thorny path of passus duriusculus – performing chromatic, music-related gestures

Cremona 18th Biennial International Conference on Baroque Music
July 10th–15th 2018

In the lecture-part of the concert I pose a question, whether chromaticism could be comprehended, and performed, as a gesture, and thus experienced as a movement in a (musical) landscape. What kind of gestural is there embedded in the chromatic passages?
