The piece is a staging of Dietrich Buxtehude’s 1680 concerto Membra Jesu Nostri. This cycle of seven cantatas dedicated to Christ’s feet, knees, hands, side, chest, and heart will be interspersed with a text written and performed by the actor Eneko Sagardoy about a guy who vanishes forever in a suspected motorcycle accident and the love of the person remaining

The composer’s bravery and brilliance, the rigour of his approaches, the novelty of his forms, and the persistent pursuit of excellence in each of his works are the trademarks of an artist worthy of comparison to Johann Sebastian Bach. Andoni Sierra’s excellent musical direction and the sound of the Conductus Ensemble are paired with a modern scene by Lucía Astigarraga in a production full of questions: “What do our bodies say about us? What remains of you in your dead body? What remains of us in the places where we loved each other? No one will know about you, no one will know about me, no one will know about us. If the coroner were to ask the road you lay on, I know it would whisper my name.”
