Beethoven’s Grand Fugue has been termed “a great artistic testament to the human capacity for meaning” and provides a gripping Season 2020 opening work. Phillip Glass’s Echorus commemorates the inspiring humanity of the great violinist, Yehudi Menuhin, with a text by Alan Ginsberg read by acclaimed local actor, Barbara Lowing. You will be transported to a chapel where macho bullfighters pray for their lives ahead of their encounters in the Madrid arena, a scene that inspired Turina to write his sensual The Bullfighter’s Prayer. Following interval, we welcome a special guest artist, leading Australian singer/songwriter Lior, whose beautiful voice joins in music written together with Nigel Westlake in Compassion – a song cycle with words that aim to unite Islam and Judaism into a remarkable and authentic celebration of compassion. Along with our signature Wild Card Mystery Guest expect a night of deep feeling and inspiration!
