We are thrilled to present a unique event with the renowned early music vocal ensemble Stile Antico and oud player Rihab Azar, exploring themes of exile and migration.
First-hand accounts of modern-day migrants are set to John Dowland’s famous instrumental pavans, Lacrimae or Seaven teares. Interspersed with these are virtuosic performances by Rihab Azar. Specially designed lighting and projections will make this a truly immersive experience, and the performance will culminate with a new work written for Stile Antico and Rihab Azar by legendary British composer Giles Swayne.
Stile Antico were the only classical group to perform at last year’s Grammy Awards and perform at many of the most prestigious venues and festivals across the world. In November, their latest release on the Harmonica Mundi label was met with critical acclaim.
Tonight’s concert is supported by Arts Council England and the Friends of Lancaster Concerts.
