The Vistaar Project

Three short trailers from the Vistaar concerts of the Berlin Zafraan Ensemble. The first trailer focuses on the premiere of the composition "Entangled Strands" by Stefan Keller, the second trailer focuses on the premiere of "Of Hiding" by Uday Krishnakumar and the third trailer shows excerpts from the rehearsals of the concerts.

With Vistaar, the Zafraan Ensemble dedicates itself to North Indian Hindustani music from different perspectives and invites the two internationally acclaimed virtuosos Aneesh Pradhan and Bahauddin Dagar for a musical exchange. Together they create an extraordinary evening in the form of a mini-festival with solo performances of Indian classical music, new and old works, immersing the audience in a fascinating musical cosmos.
