The White Peacock

Thu 10/01/2019 19:00 - 21:00
Tickets: 37.00-7.00 €


The steady rise of Charles Ives from total obscurity to a father figure of American music took almost a lifetime. His Symphony No. 2 waited almost fifty years for its concert premiere and is a model example of the composer’s unique style of combining folksongs with orchestral music. The Violin Concerto of John Adams in turn is a modern classic that is interpreted here by the brilliant Chloë Hanslip.
