A musical journey about the journey of musicAs part of three performances in the Free Winter Concerts 2015 series, this is a classical music tribute to the theme of emigration. Throughout history musicians have sought inspiration, recognition and fame in foreign lands, leaving their beloveds and familiar surroundings behind. Handel is probably Britain’s most famous musical import, arriving in London from Germany via Italy, and writing much of the national musical fabric, where he wrote his Concerto Grossi to entertain London’s burgeoning middle class. Arvo Pärt escaped Soviet controlled Estonia to forge a new life in the West, with Summa being one of the last works he composed before leaving his homeland.
