New commission for String Quartet based on Hildegard von Bingen. Premiere June 2023.
The Associació Inspiració 2022 (https://inspiracio2022.cat/) aims to find the links between the processes of inner transformation, spirituality, and the humanities. For this purpose, the Inspira Center, recently created in the Monestir, (Convent de les Caputxines of Manresa (headquarters of the same association)), promotes various activities such as talks, conferences, and workshops, as well as residencies and artistic events. In the next academic year 2022-2023, a residency is planned, to begin during the semester of this year (August 1-December 31, 2022). Manel Ribera (Manresa, 1974), is the chosen composer. He will develop the creation of the work Paracúsies Divines that arose from his study and relationship with the figure of Hildegard von Bingen (1098-1179). This creation, in turn, will be accompanied by a series of activities around the medieval Benedictine nun, as will a concert by the British soprano Grace Davidson. In the course of this concert, with a date to be determined between the months of May-June-July 2023, the aforementioned work by Ribera, will be premiered, thus establishing a musical dialogue between medieval music and music newly created.
