Event Details

The final notes of the 2018 Festival take us into the night with celebrated music by Debussy, Bernstein and Finsterer. Recognised as one of the most inspiring and gregarious musicians of the 20th century, Leonard Bernstein poured his deepest musical and human concerns into the Serenade for solo violin and string orchestra. In this final concert Debussy’s sensuous dances feature alongside Finsterer’s award-winning tribute to the blind writer Borges.
