MODERN AND BAROQUE SOUND IMAGES OF TRANSIENCE
Those who set out on the traces of vanitas - transience and fleetingness - need not go far. It is in everything and in all, and despite its horror, it is at the same time the all-pervading, sense-giving, essential factor. In this programme, contemporary sound images of vanitas are juxtaposed with those from past epochs, such as that of the great baroque master and melancholic Henry Purcell.
