Beatrix Becker – Bridges of Music
“Music is the common language of humanity” – Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Music reaches people where words fail. It can tear down walls and build bridges, open hearts and create new dialogues among the musicians themselves and their audiences. Between members of different cultures, religions, sexes and social groups, and among those who could see each other as nothing but foreigners – until they felt equally touched by the same music.
With her Bridges of Music as a project of the heart, the Berlin-based musician and composer Beatrix Becker introduces this idea to a world audience. In her works she combines such diverse styles as klezmer and tango, jazz and film music, in the search of new sounds and moods, in Buenos Aires and Switzerland, in Jerusalem and New York City. She also hosts meeting rooms with great musicians (such as Giora Feidman, Noah Hoffeld, Cora Venus Lunny).
