"Of Beasts and Brutes"

  • House for an Art Lover 10 Dumbreck Road Glasgow, Scotland, G41 United Kingdom (map)

An evening of art song that playfully and seriously explores the animalizing (and humanizing) that can arise under the sway of beasts and brutes. This program includes works by Handel, André Caplet, Libby Larsen, Shostakovich, Federico García Lorca, Harry Somers, Saint-Saëns and others, and features four Mirror Visions Ensemble commissions from composers Scott Wheeler, Richard Pearson Thomas, Francine Trester and Christopher Berg.

This concert takes place in the Music Room at the House for an Art Lover, a building constructed in 1996 based on a 1901 design by Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
