Where Continents Meet

Fri 01/03/2019 19:00 - 21:00
Tickets: 37.00-7.00 €


Music from the era of the Second World War was also an intercontinental export product. In the overtures composed by British composers for American orchestras, the heaviness of the period meets the lightness of the jazz style. A composition by the Americanised Igor Stravinsky that began life as a film score grew to become his Symphony in Three Movements – or as he himself described it, his “War Symphony”.
