In the Light of Air on Thursday 6th February 2020
Anna Thorvaldsdottir In the Light of Air
Schoenberg Pierrot Lunaire
Anna Thorvaldsdottir’s music seems drawn from the very earth of her native Iceland – and never more so than in this deep, hypnotic and spellbinding masterpiece. Emerging gradually over 40 minutes and four movements – Luminance, Serenity, Existence and Remembrance – In the Light of Air will be introduced with a short mindfulness meditation by Amaradaya, ordained member of the Triratna Buddhist Order. The work that follows could hardly be more different: Arnold Schoenberg’s 21 snapshot glimpses into the mind and the madness of a woman on the brink, an undisputed landmark in 20th-century music.
