Metanoia - the word itself - means beyond thought; to broaden and change the way of seeing. ‘Metanoia’, which crosses both time and borders with the work of Giacomo Puccini, Johann Sebastian Bach, Heitor Villa- Lobos, Arvo Pärt, and Alexander Borodin, is steeped in this concept: From Puccini, who only wrote one sacred work on account of the ‘Almighty God’ commanding him to write ‘only for the stage’, to Bach, who possessed an astonishing ability to make us experience transcendence using the simplest of elements, to Pärt, whose ten-year creative crisis birthed a new, highly original musical language. Together with her ensemble, K, the choir Sequenza 9.3, and violinist Manon Galy, Simone Menezes invites us to experience music as a place that can take us beyond thought, and uncover how it has done so for the classical greats.
