Mendelssohn?s music was notoriously banned in 1936 by a Nazi regime which labelled the Jewish composer ?a dangerous accident of musical history?. Hartmann?s?Concerto Funebre, dashed off in the autumn of 1939, represents the contrasting hope and hopelessness of a country plunged into war.
Arvo P?rt and P?teris Vasks use their music as a vehicle for spiritual questioning, to transcendent effect, and Bach?s ebullient E major concerto is a testament to the pure, uplifting joy of melody and harmony.
Together with world-renowned Russian violinist?Alina Ibragimova, join us for an exploration of the political, spiritual and emotional power of music.
