Musical emotions and soulful words

“In the Mirror”, read by Sky du Mont and played by the quartet Mirror Strings, promises a fascinating program for the whole family. meetMUSIC is delighted to welcome Sky du Mont and Mirror Strings to the Christmas-adapted program “In the Mirror” – contemporary music meets contemporary literature. Together, the five artists present the diversity of the 21st century. Sky du Mont reads amusing texts in an inimitable way, virtuously surrounded by guitars and cellos with classical chamber music enriched with pop, rock and minimal elements. True to the program title “In the Mirror”, musical emotions are reflected in prose and soulful words seem to echo in sounds. A perfect program for young and old during the Christmas season.

Argentine-born actor, author and voice actor Sky du Mont is one of the most successful representatives of German television, awarded the Bambi and the German Comedy Prize. But he is also internationally acclaimed, appearing in American, English and French productions. In his engagements, he played alongside William Holden, Gregory Peck, Rod Steiger, Lee Marvin and Anthony Quinn, as well as Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman, among others.

The worldwide unique ensemble Mirror Strings combines two guitars (Luisa Marie Darvish Ghane and Johann Jacob Nissen) with two cellos (Samuel Selle and Phillip Wentrup) – a truly extraordinary formation. As different as cellos and guitars sound, they communicate and harmonize perfectly in this quartet.

Mirror Strings is innovative and inspiring: composers from all over the world compose especially for the quartet and bring in their own culture, background and personality. Always under the motto: no conventions – from minimal music, rock/pop to contemporary effects and muezzin calls. Thus, different styles, characters and emotions create fascinating music, written especially for the ensemble, and an absolutely unique energy!

Concert engagements have taken Mirror Strings to concert halls such as the Margravial Opera House in Bayreuth, to festivals such as the Ruhrfestspiele and the Festspiele Mecklenburg Vorpommern, and to radio (NDR Kultur). The quartet works across genres: their own arrangements and programs create a musically diverse and communicative space. Concerts of the Mirror Strings touch directly and personally, jump from great looseness to deep emotionality and let the concert become a common moment of the audience and the musicians even in classical music.
