30 Years Sarband: The program of Sarband's new CD
Graz, Styriarte, Helmut-List-Halle, 20:00
Two armies, two worldviews, two religions in a deadly fight for the future of Europe. The styriarte mobilises two ensembles for the epochal year of 1683 and the decisive Battle of Vienna: Lorenz Duftschmid and his Armonico Tributo on the side of the Christian defenders, and Sarband under Vladimir Ivanoff on the side of the approaching Ottoman army, led by Kara Mustafa. Both sides' points of view come to life in historical texts and the outcome of the battle was unclear until the Poles finally arrived.
