Strictly speaking, the Silk Road linked the eastern Mediterranean region with China, but Venice was the real starting point and destination for many people and goods. Reason enough for the recorder virtuoso Dorothee Oberlinger to start her personal sound journey there too. Together with musicians from her Baroque music ensemble 1700 and the Sarband ensemble, she follows the route to the east – purely through music, of course.

Traversing enormous geographical expanses and time periods, she creates an imaginary road movie soundtrack. It starts with Antonio Vivaldi's imagined sounds of the Mughal Empire, before stopping with the dances of the Balkans and the whirling dervishes of Anatolia. It galops with a Tatar marching song into the Taklamakan Desert, and arrives at the Korean composer Isan Yun's infatuation with China. Flutes and fiddles, cello, harp and the qanun box zither are the means of transportation on this swashbuckling ride across the borders of genres and eras.
