When playing in an ensemble, musicians have the ability to understand each other without verbal means of communication. It is through their silent solidarity that we can be moved by music. Throughout the pandemic, however, musicians experienced separation; even when they perform today, masks, distance and partitions are indispensable. Yet, despite these physical barriers, music transcends borders, defies quarantine and brings people together as listeners, composers or performers.
Bringing the Prison Yard Festival to its uplifting conclusion, this theatrically staged concert reflects on the isolation endured by all of us, and the dislocation experienced by musicians kept apart. In Mozart’s Rondo, the pianist searches in vain for meaning, connection or companionship but the introspective solitude of a Bach Partita for solo violin opens up a tentative dialogue with a like-minded neighbor. A single instrument is joined by another, first in Q&A then in harmony together; the group, the confidence and the richness grow; we pause for the calming mindfulness of Messiaen’s hymn of praise before the whole ensemble dives headlong into the extrovert joy and life-affirming reunion of Schumann’s Piano Quintet.
