The stage holds a veritable cabinet of musical curiosities: a street organ, player piano, hurdy-gurdy, nyckelharpa, stroviol, gramophone, etc. For their first performance at Musica, the musicians of Béla have clearly stepped outside the bounds of the string quartet. With this eclectic selection of mechanical instruments, the performers and composers of this uncommon concert examine our contradictory relationship with machines – one fluctuating between fascination and repulsion. Is it a losing battle against these invulnerable rivals, or will we see a fruitful encounter that transcends the instrumental ?
