In a weekend in the form of a mini-festival, three concerts will each draw parallels between two works from radically different periods that seem to respond, each in its own way, to the same theme. Composed around 1678 for violin and basso continuo, the 15 Rosary Sonatas by Heinrich Biber retain their extraordinary power of sonic fascination. For each, Biber requires a different violin tuning, to allow longer resonance of the note chosen for open chording. The same focus on resonance is applied in Stockhausen’s Natürliche Dauern (Natural Durations, 2006) for solo piano, in which the duration of notes and numerous other compositional parameters are determined by the natural resonance of the instrument at the moment of execution.
