One aspect of ‘Origins’ is the exploration of music transformed. From Chinese folk music, to Schoenberg’s truly exquisite Verklärte Nacht, this program not only introduces our Festival composer-in-residence, but pays homage to the vivid worlds of song, tone poem and an instrument Mozart enjoyed taking to new heights.

Hosted by Christopher Lawrence
