Share in this sonorous feast as Caroline Almonte and Blair Harris offer their vivid interpretations of four masterpieces spanning the last one hundred years.
Frank Bridge and Benjamin Britten are two of the key figures of the 20th century British music, who both explored the ever-evolving language that is passed down from one generation to the next in their monumental sonatas for cello and piano.
Caerwen Martin’s work, Heart of Yours Heart of Mine, written especially for this concert, is a highly evocative and emotional outpouring, showcasing the subtleties of our current musical dialect. Complemented by the stillness and serenity of Brenton Broadstock’s Clear Flame Within reminding us to take respite from everyday life and bathe in the beauty of love.
This performance delves into the very core of human emotion, not only connecting us to one another, but reconnecting with ourselves.
