Join the Neoclassical Ensemble for its final concert, the conclusion of its odyssey into the world of great musical revolutions. This concert will begin with the thoroughly modern classicism of Wim Mertens, before delving into the Baroque and Classical recompositions of Michael Nyman, based on the works of Henry Purcell and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Is there truly a place for rewriting in music, what does it tell us of prescience, and does it prove he existence of a musical continuum from the dawn of the Western classical tradition through to the modern day?
