To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the ISO, festival artistic director Karl Fiorini has programmed a kaleidoscopic programme of different soundscapes. An ephemeral opening leads us through Prokofiev’s effortless and enchanting songfulness in his last Symphony. In sharp contrast, the torrid texts of the Andalusian poet Ana Bocanegra Brasco of Fiorini’s work will be challenged by Beethoven concluding chorus exulting in an ode to music and “the sounds of harmony in our life”.
