"A cathartic account, from darkness to light"
The Greek lyra, like the viola da gamba, is the instrument of melancholy. Both, in the golden ages of their stories, were used to express this particular feeling, that state of mind that nourishes so much music, beyond words. This program aims to make the miraculous encounter of these two instruments and the Elizabethan and Byzantinottoman worlds, but also to describe a cathartic narrative, a happy metamorphosis, darkness to light and lamentation at the party.
