What a combination! The experimental singer Barbara Hannigan meets the pianists Katia and Marielle Labèque, who also stop at nothing. The meditative sounds of Hildegard von Bingen are juxtaposed with the early Baroque works of Barbara Strozzi and Francesca Caccini. And all of this is brought together with electronic and visual support by sound tinkerer David Chalmin and this year's Creative Chair Bryce Dessner. It's all about the big questions: about light and darkness. Connection and isolation. Finitude and eternity. And last but not least, what music can mean to us.
