Songs of Longing and Exile
Exploring themes of exile and migration early music vocal ensemble Stile Antico and Oud player Rihab Azar combine for a unique musical event. New texts by poet Peter Oswald from 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 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.
