Aurora presents an immersive and intimate musical journey through light and air.

Aurora presents an immersive performance of Anna Thorvaldsdottir’s In the Light of Air. Scored for viola, cello, piano, harp percussion and electronics, the piece is described by Gramophone magazine as “an exquisite tetralogy in which melodies are thrown up by the music’s very exploration of sound and texture… a musical perusal of light and air, and of visibility, temperature and geology.”

Presented in the round in Hall Two with theatrical lighting and players within touching distance of the audience, Thorvaldsdottir’s 40-minute work is paired here with music by Tōru Takemitsu and Claude Debussy.
