The Profit Yealding Building, “Europe”

On the first day of June, the musicians from the project END OF AUTUMN will visit Ruse. It is organized by the association “The Purple Swan”, Vienna, and the organizers of the event are State Opera – Ruse and International “Elias Canetti” Society. The concert programme will feature Apostol Milenkov, bass, Ruzha Semova, piano, and the evening will be moderated by Alexander Alexandrov. About the journeys with this program, the musicians say, “Whether by chance or not on our way we meet different people. Very often, when we encounter unfamiliar musical works, the boundary between earthly and unearthly suddenly melts and then the greatness of the human spirit gains visible dimensions. This is because only art is capable of becoming this bridge between worlds.” The compositions and lyrics of the songs based on poems by Georg Trakl (1887-1914), Carl Dalago (1869-1949) and Rainer Maria Rilke (1875-1926) convey a true experience that touches the audience’s senses and becomes a true cultural chord – a symbiosis between the musicality of the poems, placed in new spatial dimensions, thanks to the connection of the spiritual element, whose carrier is the sound of the piano and the human voice, and the literary “load” of historical layers.
