OSM Chorus concert: exile according to Brahms, Stravinsky, and Britten

OSM Chorus concert: exile according to Brahms, Stravinsky, and Britten

SEASON PRESENTING PARTNER

Maison symphonique de Montréal

Exile is and remains an inexhaustible source of inspiration for artists, some of whom had first-hand experience of it: Eisler, Britten, and Stravinsky. The theme of exile is also at the root of Brahms magnificent Song of Destiny and inspires today’s artists Dany Laferrière and Keiko Devaux, co-creators of a new work for the OSM Chorus.
