The ancient Indo-European civilization of Thrace was adventurous, inquisitive and open to exchange with other cultures. These key principles of the Thracians serve as a beautiful metaphor for this ensemble featuring cellist Jean-Guihen Queyras. From the captivating percussion of the Chemirani brothers (who grew up alongside Queyras on the hillsides of Provence) to the magical lyra of Sokratis Sinopoulos, these Sunday morning sessions open gateways into undiscovered musical worlds. Here contemporary exploration, improvisation and the traditional music of the Mediterranean converge in one powerful and irresistible spirit.
