Patricia Kopatchinskaja releases ‘Time and Eternity’
Patricia Kopatchinskaja releases a remarkable new album, Time and Eternity due to be released on Alpha Classics on Friday, 13 September 2019. The album, recorded with Camerata Bern, will be the first for Kopatchinskaja in her post as Music Director of the ensemble. The album which features music spanning 600 years, features works by Hartmann, Martin, Fišer, Bach, de Machaut and opens with the Kol Nidre, the introductory prayer to Yom Kippur. The programme received its world premiere in the former Dominican church in Bern, Switzerland in September 2018.
Discussing the album, Patricia describes the music as being “made out of the blood and tears of tortured souls: a strangled scream, voices muttering amid a terrified silence, the sounds of war in an improvised cadenza. It is about us, our past and our future.”
