Concert Information

In Weimar Berlin, the workers plot a musical revolution. A cello flies as high as Icarus – then crashes in flames. And an Austrian composer clambers up a tree, and listens to its songs. Whether it is the poetry of Kurt Schwertsik, Kurt Weill’s reports from Berlin, or his very own cello concerto, no-one makes new music sing, dance, and laugh quite like our Composer / Conductor HK ‘Nali’ Gruber. Add a brand-new symphony
by national treasure David Matthews, and this concert might change the way you think about music of our time.
