About

The dramaturgy of the project is inspired by the life philosophy of Hildegard von Bingen as is preserved in her musical and literary work. On the one hand we can perceive Hildegard as a mystic and saintly woman, on the other hand as a strong abbess and politically gifted person. Those two points of view are the most important in the interpretation of her concept of human being. Her music and visions are full of humanity and divinity as well, it inspired us to call the concert programme “Ego sum homo” (I am the man).

The female vocal ensemble, Tiburtina, was established in 2008 from former members of the Schola Benedicta ensemble. It is built on its tradition and goes on to interpret western plainchant, medieval polyphonic music and contemporary music.

beautiful, manicured, musical candy designed to entice our 21st century ears
