Explore a world of music inspired by the forces of nature. At a time when we face endless challenges to protect the environment around us, this is an evening to remind us of what we have. From thistles, each a ‘revengeful burst of resurrection’, in The Yehudi Menuhin School alumna Cheryl Frances-Hoad’s The Whole Earth Dances, to the undulating serenity of Takemitsu’s Between Tides and a selection of Debussy’s timeless Preludes, the first half of this concert is a perfect accompaniment to Max Richter’s Four Seasons Recomposed, a stunning homage and rescoring of the Vivaldi originals – very likely the most well-known nature-inspired works of all time. And like the thistles and ferns, hills and tides, this is music at its most raw, uncompromising and endlessly moving.
Join us and the young musicians of the Yehudi Menuhin School, as some of the brightest talents of a generation take us on a journey through changing landscapes and renewing seasons, in an unforgettable evening of breathtaking beauty and hope.
This is a Yehudi Menuhin School promotion.
The performance will last approximately 2 hours, including an interval.
