The Boston Globe, USA:


"It takes an eloquent artist and a patient scholar to recruit and arrange the relics of a truly distant past in a way that creates a work capable of enthralling modern listeners. The resulting piece is a mesmerizing and at times hauntingly beautiful work, with Livljanic's pure-toned voice at its core. ... The undulating vocal lines provide a certain melancholy expressive tug, and a rich array of piquant dissonances makes the music sound both very old and very new. Sanda Hrzic has provided a subtle and organic staging that makes poetic use of light and shadows as the fine musicians Norbert Rodenkirchen and Albrecht Maurer drift and hover around the singer. ... It is an exercise in a kind of generative musicology at its best..."


Vancouver Review, Canada:


"All three musicians were so attuned and so responsive to one another they seemed as one, none dominant, all equally necessary. Playing a selection of early and Croatian folk instruments, Norbert Rodenkirchen, flutist and medievalist and Albrecht Maurer, string player, jazz musician and specialist in improvization, followed every nuance of Katarina Livljanic’s very powerful, flexible voice.

The music is rich and opulent in sound with long, hypnotic lines.

Livljanic’s subtle interpretations of the story kept the audience rivetted. Using mostly song with very effective spoken or half-spoken passages, Livljanic unrolled Judith’s story with awful inevitability, her firm and unbending character reflected by the supreme confidence of the singer."

Judith


A biblical story from Renaissance Croatia
Musical reconstruction: Katarina Livljanić


The biblical story of Judith, a Bethulian widow who kills the enemy Holofernes to liberate her people, became a cornerstone of medieval Croatian literature, set in verses by Marko Marulić, Dalmatian poet of the 16th century. Written in Croatian, in the way of old traditional Glagolitic poets, this story is one of the few texts that Marulić wrote in his mother tongue, probably intended for  a female audience which generally wasn’t familiar with the Latin language.

Albrecht Maurer is a menber of Ensembles Dialogos in Paris since 2005. Together with Katarina Livljanic the musical director and Norbert Rodenkirchen they developed three different programs.


Albrecht Maurer plays in Judith, texts by Marko Marulic, a musical reconstruktion of Katarina Livljanic with staging, light and subtitles projection. A concert program is Barlaam and Josaphat, a christianized version of the life of Buddha. This summer they will finish the stage version of the newest program Heretical Angels. More information is available on the new Dialogos website.


„With Dialogos I jumped into a totaly new world. Theway of medieval accompaning based ona culture of imrovisation and experience with different modi. My experience in jazz and with archaic sounds helped a lot in the kind of work. i love the  consonance of Katarinas alto voice with medieval flute and gothic fiddle. Before my engagement in the Ensemble Dialogos I started with my college Norbert Rodenkirchen an intensive musical partership. We met once a week over one year and improvised together on our medieval instruments without speaking about it. In this year we created a sound full of resonance and overtones by using the natural tuning system. I didn´t know such a rich overlapping of overtones before.“ Albrecht Maurer
