Lucie Horsch premières Reza Namavar’s Fetiapoipoi

Reza Namavar Fetiapoipoi

Baroque concerto after Vivaldi

Lucie Horsch recorder/mezzosoprano
Orchestra of the 18th Century

One of three commissions made possible by recorder player (and singer) Lucie Horsch’s 2022 BBT Fellowship, Reza Namavar’s Fetiapoipoi was premièred in May 2024, with Lucie and the Orchestra of the 18th Century. The three movements bear Tahitian titles, the first is titled Pouri, meaning darkness, the second movement Fetiapoipoi, the morning star rises, and the last movement Poipoi, the morning. So within the piece there is a development from darkness to light. And Lucie also sings in the middle movement, based explicitly on the text of Vivaldi’s aria Sovente il sole, from his 1726 pasticcio-serenata, Andromeda liberata.  More live performances are scheduled for December 2024.
