About the event

Grab a glass of your favourite tipple and join us online in the Black Sparrow Bar for our first ever Digital Session.

Diving deep into the music of Haydn and Shostakovich – Between the Shades of Light explores personal expression and musical identity in times of freedom and suppression.

Haydn, writing with beauty and optimism, pursuing his ideal form of expression - and Shostakovich, in soviet-era Russia, intent on expressing his voice under suppression and dictatorship.  Two quartets written under vastly different circumstances, yet each, affecting music that speaks directly to the soul.
