This concert is part of the MCR:CLASSICAL festival. Single show tickets from £10, Saturday tickets £15, Weekend £25.
In times of disruption and chaos, the world craves peace and tranquillity.
Our concert with British/Polish violinist Daniel Pioro is the embodiment of the internal struggle between chaos and the need for peace, taking us on a journey somewhere between transcendental spirituality and gut-wrenching disruption. We begin with a sonic meditation for orchestra alongside two newly orchestrated works from Pioro’s recently released album, Saint Boy. Pioro’s serene sound is juxtaposed by Anna Clyne and Holly Harrison’s works, full of relentless chaos and anguish. We finish with Vasks’ Lonely Angel, which is inspired by the vision of ‘an angel hovering over the world, contemplating the state of the battered Earth with tears in his eyes’.
These are troubling times we live in, but we invite you to join us as we look to reconnect with the beauty in all of it.
“Daniel Pioro’s playing is the sound in my head when I write for the violin.”
