Vine The Tree of Man – Composer in Residence
Brahms Sextet No.2
Join musicians from the MSO in this beautiful chamber program featuring works by Boccherini, Brahms and 2018 Composer in Residence Carl Vine. Open your eyes and your ears to the expressive, sweeping music in this third instalment in the popular Chamber Series.
‘The text of The Tree of Man Cantata seeks to convert the inexpressibility of life into words. Is it possible though that music can express the inexpressible? I truly believe it is! The beautiful repose of Boccherini, the yearning nature of the Vine and the glorious sweep of Brahms encapsulate just how miraculous our world of music is.’ Sophie Rowell, Associate Concertmaster.
