Led by Bogdan Sofei.

With soloist Andreea Banciu.
Witness the unfolding and resilience of human nature, featuring music written out of adversity, bringing the colour and triumph of the human spirit to life:
Pavel Haas - Study for Strings (1943)
George Walker - Lyric for Strings (1922)
Herbert Howells - Elegy for Viola, string quartet and string orchestra (1917) Soloist - Andrea Banciu
Jane O'Leary - Strings in the air, songs in the stones (2022)
Dmitri Shostakovich - Chamber Symphony in C Minor Op. 110a (1967)
This programme title has been curated around the idea of the human spirit, continually unfolding out of adversity, the triumph of human spirit over difficulty, war, trauma and oppression.
The pieces of music we have chosen illustrate some of the most powerful and sometimes beautiful pieces of music written despite great adversity in the composer's life; despite adversity. We can all identify with triumph over distress, hardship and heartbreak. It is part of the human condition. We hope that this concert series will provide a metaphor for survival, growth and flourishing.
