Resonate: Violin Concerto’Concentric Paths’ by Thomas Adès
As part of ‘Music of the Spheres’ in April, May and June 2019.
Soar to cosmic heights of wonder and ponder the celestial sounds that have mesmerised philosophers since ancient times in our most visually striking Orchestral Theatre production to date.
For the Greek philosophers and their later admirers in the Renaissance, music was of profound importance, woven into the fabric of the cosmos as elemental sounds produced by the stars and planets themselves. This enduring concept of the ‘music of the spheres’ provides the starting point for this orchestral adventure that roams from Mozart to Max Richter, with elements of design, lighting, choreography and animations that place our orchestra inside ancient visions of the solar system.
Thomas Adès’ Violin Concerto ‘Concentric Paths’ – a soaring modern masterpiece will be performed by Pekka Kuusisto – one of the brightest stars in today’s musical firmament.
