Franz Schubert: ‘Der Doppelgänger’ arr. Liszt for solo piano
Pēteris Vasks: Distant Light for solo violin and strings
Osvaldo Golijov: The Dreams and Prayers of Isaac the Blind for clarinet and string quartet
Ibrahim Keivo celebrated folk musician sings and plays Bedouin songs from the lost tribes of Syria with the Buzuq/Oud , with Hugo Ticciati, Christoffer Sundqvist, Gareth Lubbe and other festival musicians

Two of the great works of the last quarter-century, reaching towards visions of the past and of the future. Composer-in-residence Peteris Vasks’ stunning violin concerto, Distant Light peers through the murky uncertainties of today’s world, and finds fresh hope. Osvaldo Golijov’s extraordinary Dreams and Prayers conjure up the sounds of his Jewish heritage - the powerful prophecies of Abraham, the klezmer bands which entertained generations of exiles, and the sung prayers of the cantor.

It’s all part of a World Music summit meeting, mixing the songs of Bedouin tribes with South African folk and a truly amazing sonic mirage in Gareth Lubbe’s overtone singing. You’ll hear differently after this!

Duration: 2 hours 30mins with interval
