About the event
The United Strings of Europe give their Wilton’s debut with a new arrangement of Richard Strauss’s towering masterpiece Metamorphosen. Showcasing music from their new album Renewal, renowned soprano Ruby Hughes will join them for Osvaldo Golijov’s moving Three Songs for Soprano, an exploration of the composer’s Jewish-Argentinian heritage with singing in different languages (Yiddish, Galician and English). Other music from the album includes a new arrangement of Joanna Marsh’s In Winter’s House alongside Caroline Shaw’s modern classic Entr’acte, a tour-de-force for strings inspired by Haydn’s chamber music. The performance will also include Daniel Kidane’s Be Still for strings and crotales, a reflection on the world locking down following the advent of COVID-19.
With such rich and varied music, this promises to be an epic performance.
