Intro with Barbara Hannigan

Please note that the Sechseläuten children's parade takes place on Sunday afternoon and traffic may be restricted. Allow sufficient time for your journey.

What a combination! The experimental singer Barbara Hannigan meets the pianists Katia and Marielle Labèque, who also stop at nothing. The meditative sounds of Hildegard von Bingen are juxtaposed with the early baroque works of Barbara Strozzi and Francesca Caccini. And all of this is brought together with electronic and visual support by sound engineer David Chalmin and this year's Creative Chair Bryce Dessner. It's all about the really big questions: about light and darkness. Connection and isolation. Finitude and eternity. And last but not least, what music can mean to us.
