Khatia Bunitishvili in Kiev
Mussorgsky - Pictures at an Exhibition
Khatia Buniatishvili's guest appear­ance in Fall 2015 at the International Center of Cul­ture and Arts in Kiev fea­tures the piano suite PIC­TURES AT AN EXHI­BI­TION, that was written by Mussorgsky in hon­our of his deceased friend, the ar­chi­tect Victor Hartmann.
Buniatishvilis mu­sical prom­enade re­veals an extraor­dinary thrilling interpretation, accompa­nied by im­pres­sions of Kiev’s cultur­al life including vis­its at artists friends and the current mayor of Kiev, the for­mer heavyweight champion, Vitali Klitschko.

Mozartwoche 2015
Horse Dressage by Bartabas Set to Sacred Music
BFMI took the op­por­tun­ity to re­cord Dav­ide pen­it­ente, a won­der­ful piece per­formed dur­ing Moz­art Week 2015. The spec­tacle com­bines an out­stand­ing beau­ti­ful in­ter­pret­a­tion of Moz­art’s mu­sic with the ex­cep­tion­al art of horse dressage. It is staged by the unique French eques­tri­an cho­reo­graph­er Bart­a­bas and his team from the Académie équestre de Ver­sailles. Bart­a­bas’s art can hardly be cat­egor­ized – his in­ter­pret­a­tion of Moz­art’s mu­sic brings to­geth­er horses and hu­man be­ings, mu­sic, move­ment, light and cos­tumes in a po­et­ic syn­thes­is of all the arts. In the Felsen­reit­schule he in­nov­at­ively fo­cuses the lime­light on the stars for which this unique ven­ue was cre­ated over three cen­tur­ies ago: horses.

The cast in­cludes Les Mu­si­ciens du Louvre Gren­oble, the so­loists Chris­ti­ane Karg, Mari­anne Cre­bassa, Stan­islas de Barbeyrac, and the Salzbur­ger Bach­chor un­der the bat­on of Marc Minkowsky.

ORF 2: Sunday FEB 8, 10:15 a.m. + Monday FEB 9, 03.20 p.m.
