Shakespeare-themed programme traversing the centuries, from Hildegard of Bingen to Leonard Cohen.

Cellist Matt Haimovitz, a “remarkable virtuoso” who “never turns in a predictable performance” (The New Yorker), and the unique trio Voice bring their new "delightfully inventive" (Portland Press Herald) collaboration to the UK following their successful tour of the USA in February 2016.

If Music Be the Food of Love - a concert programme of shifting moods and atmospheres - features the music of Hildegard of Bingen, Philip Glass, Ayanna Witter-Johnson, Ned Rorem, Leonard Cohen, and the UK premiere of three new pieces on Shakespeare's sonnet 60.
