Magnificat - If today was tomorrow and yesterday today

Magnificat - If today was tomorrow and yesterday today

Magnificat - If today was tomorrow and yesterday today

It is a performance in which images, ideas and thoughts run together without needing narration, without a pause and without any chance to applaud in between. Heinz Spoerli is concerned above all with the conditions and prerequisites of profound faith – which is frequently accompanied by rejection, ostracism, insecurity and isolation, but "Heinz Spoerli is a magician, who uses sleight of hand to make us forget theoretical
tedium. And so we experience 70 astonishing minutes in which dance and music fuse to a degree which is to be found only in Zurich, since the death of Uwe Scholz" (Andrea Kachelrieß, Stuttgarter Nachrichten). The musical point of departure is Bach’s “Magnifi cat”, which is confronted with other works by the composer such as the third Brandenburg Concerto, the Solo Sonata for Violin in G minor or the aria, “Ich habe genug”.
