What does music mean for us today? Can it offer sanctuary, an alternative to our fast-paced society? Does it provide an outlet for religious, mythical, even fantastical ideas? The festival ‘Music & Healing’ explores these ideas with compositions by von Bingen, Dowland and Bach, all the way to overtone singing and 21st century music, featuring masterpieces such as Wagner’s ‘Tristan und Isolde’, Stravinsky’s ‘Le sacre du printemps’ or Scriabin’s ‘Poème de l’extase’. Join the orchestra and Robin Ticciati for a spiritual journey through the world of music. All four concerts are available in a discounted festival package.
