Ensemble Musica Sequenza

The Silent Cantata

Founded in 2008 at New York’s prestigious Julliard School by bassoonist and composer Burak Özdemir, Musica Sequenza is an artistic collective made up, among others, of top-class musicians and singers. Here, we’re completely elsewhere! The program features excerpts from JS Bach’s cantatas, with the bassoon playing the role of solo singer, from soprano to alto or tenor to bass! No words, just J.S. Bach’s melodic lines, as sensitive as they are delicate. You’ll also discover Özdemir’s intimate universe with two of his works for violin, viola and organ.

Extreme innovation!

Burak Özdemir & Musica Sequenza’s performances are made possible by the generous support of the Goethe Institut.
