play / stop the soundtrack

mise en scène de Giacomo ravicchio

  1. - English -

Written and directed by Giacomo Ravicchio, original sound music by the French composer Jérôme Baur.

When my  friend, the director Giacomo Ravicchio, invited me to compose an original sound track of a 6 hour play, a story which takes place all over the world and even in outer space, I felt dizzy.

It has been one of the biggest challenge  in my music carreer as a music composer. I will never be able to thank enough Giacomo Ravicchio, playwright and director of genius and his wife Elise Müller- Ravicchio both creators of this exceptional work.

         A six-hour show, four plays into one!

« Two lovers looking for each other everywhere in  the world and throughout  their lives »

"I’m in love for this production", Jyllands-Posten, Denmark (2000)

This acclaimed work in four parts by Giacomo Ravicchio was first performed during the Århus Festival Week and in Copenhagen in September 2000.

Interest was so great that the play was performed again in September 2002.

"Earth, air, water and fire" is a heartrending love story performed by 10 actors. Emil Hansen, a successful press photographer, rediscovers a part of his own past which up until now was shrouded in darkness.

In the autumn of his life he finally realises how much he loved Helena, and how much she loved him.

They have followed each other like two eternal shadows for 40 years. Forever connected and without knowing it, their paths cross again and again, until suddenly they both stand face to face to their past.

The performance lasts six hours including three intemissions.

The soundtrack of this performance composed by Jérôme Baur is a journey in itself and we cannot imagine this story with other music!
