Faith, Hope & Death
Southbank Series (1st of 3 concert series).
Beginning with the music of Arvo Pärt which leans towards the somewhat spiritual, mystical and meditative chant-based music, this program travels through themes of faith, hope and death. With Vasks captivating third quartet, based on traditional Christmas carols, providing some hope for the world, in contrast, Schubert’s sinister and somewhat demonic Death and the Maiden quartet is full of drama and a close flirtation with death – a program to stimulate the senses and leave you wanting more.
