Samir Calixto en Cello Octet Amsterdam - Summa

Age category

The iconic music of Arvo P&auml;rt is a source of inspiration for many people because of its timeless and almost ethereal quality. The purity and freedom of his music touches on the longing for consolation and tranquility in times of confusion and unrest. The tranquility and silence in P&auml;rt&rsquo;s work are just as important as the musical notes.<br />
<br />
&nbsp;It is this &lsquo;music of silence&rsquo; that brought together choreographer Samir Calixto and the Amsterdam Cello8ctet to create Summa. P&auml;rt called the Cello8ctet &lsquo;ein Goldst&uuml;ck&rsquo; and wrote compositions specially for them that now form the basis for Summa. With great concentration, eight &lsquo;cellists and two dancers present a synthesis of the music and knowledge that is locked inside our bodies: a &lsquo;summa&rsquo; of our human complexity. Music caresses space like a whisper, while the dance cuts through space like the wind.
