‘Once everything is gone, there is art.’
In a world of political extremes and isolation, a crisis situation sometimes seems worryingly close. When the worst happens, the radio claims its place as communication of last resort, with music providing respite, comfort, and solace.
The beauty of Mozart, and the contemporary sounds of Canadian composer James Rolfe shine through the darkness in this concert of music for the end of time.
Haus Musik sets out to radically reimagine classical music performance and presentation, and for this latest installment we’re joined by visionary director Amanda Smith. She sets the live music of Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra within the confines of a bunker, along with lone survivor ‘Alex’ whose only hope is the radio, and music.
