Talk with composer Helena Tulve.

A conversation with the composer Helena Tulve and a joint viewing of the recording of the premiere of the Helena Tulve’s composition “Visiones”.

On September 21, 2020, the world premiere of Helena Tulve’s new work “Visiones” took place at the Venice Biennale in St. Mark’s Church. The piece was commissioned by the Venice Music Biennale for St. Mark’s Cathedral. The 50-minute piece is based on two Christian sources: a liturgical drama manuscript found in the library of Santa Maria della Fava and fragments of the Gospel of Mary contained in the Berlin Codex (Papyrus Berolinensis).

The music was performed by the vocal ensemble Vox Clamantis (conductor Jaan-Eik Tulve), the St. Mark’s Church ensemble Cappella Marciana (conductor Marco Gemmani), the baroque ensemble of the Venice Conservatory named after Benedetto Marcello, Anna-Liisa Eller (Estonian kannel) and Marco Ambrosini and Angela Ambrosini (nyckelharpa). The performance was directed by Marius Peterson.
