Divertimento in D
Ricercar a 6
Piano Concerto No.14 in E flat major
Babel (European premiere)
Chamber Symphony Op.118a
plus improvisation by SE and Gabriela Montero
Babel explores the concept of music that comes with a message; a selection of powerful pieces using music as a tool to communicate something that words could not.
At the heart of the concert is Gabriela Montero’s new commission for piano and string orchestra, a colourful and inventive portrait of her experience as human rights activist as she tries to be heard in a world which wants only to talk, not listen.
Join us and witness the room fill with complex, deep and urgent messages, from the political to the philosophical, without a single word being uttered.
