Calliope Tsoupaki

MEMENTO NOSTRI New York Premiere

MEMENTO NOSTRI New York Premiere
March, 9 & 10 2024 
“MEMENTO NOSTRI” will sound in a U.S /NEW YORK premiere.
With the amazing Cantori New York, conducted by Mark Shapiro also featuring Parthenia Viol Consort and Farallon Recorder Quartet at the Church of St. Francis Xavier, NYC.

Like no other, the Greek-Dutch composer Calliope Tsoupaki knows how to stop time. She touches people straight in the heart with her breathtaking music that spans centuries. In her Memento Nostri, Calliope intertwines Latin and Byzantine texts. A brand new mass that connects traditions like a universal meta-requirement, Tsoupaki reveals. In Tsoupaki’s new mass, it all comes together. The warmth of the choir sound, the mercurial sound of a collection of viola da gambas, combined with the clarity of a recorder ensemble.  The work is dedicated In memoriam Louis Andriessen, Calliope’s teacher who passed away in the  summer of 2021.
