Mylleri – 2023 : L’Orient & L’Occident (The East & West)
14 new , neo-classical compositions , telling the tales of another era, while traveling with the legendary Orient Express in the late 19th century. From the western part of Europe , to the eastern part ; Constantinople and even further to Cairo and Damascus. Some travelers with great expectations of a new life, others to meet new friends, or a rendezvous with an unexpected love. The music reflects a nostalgic longing for romance, slow-life, in a time when traveling was still an artform. Classical phrases in a combination with impressionistic elements.
Every season there will be four different parts ; Great expectations, the art of traveling , A rendezvous & (unexpected) encounters. Staged in beautiful cities like London, Vienna , Belgrade , Paris, Trieste to name a few.
Traveling is like life itself. Something we can all relate to .
