Vít Zouhar - Pinnas columbae
for countertenor, cimbalom, and chamber orchestra
Premiere: Spanish Synagogue, December 6, 2010
Jan Mikušek – cimbalom & countertenor
Pinnas columbae is a remix of three fragments from the Psalms and music gestures. The starting point is the verse "Abyssus abyssum vocat (...)". Two more fragments follow: Pinnas columbae and Exaudi me, and together they form a triad: the abyss – the escape - the enlightenment. This triad alludes to Psalms 41, 54 and 12 in the Vulgate, but also is a remix of their meanings. Shifts by merger.
