The concept of metanoia – that, which goes beyond thought – most commonly describes a change in the way of seeing and thinking about things. With this recording, Italian-Brazilian conductor Simone Menezes and her chamber orchestra Ensemble K, together with the choir Sequenza 9.3, go on a musical journey to find moments of metanoia in the lives and works of composers such as Giacomo Puccini, Arvo Pärt, Heitor Villa-Lobos, Alexander Borodin, and Johann Sebastian Bach. Menezes is known for her creativity and innovative spirit and ability to brilliantly combine classical and contemporary repertoire.
