Concert - The Dark Power of Music

  • Holywell Music Room Holywell Street Oxford

Here we turn to the dark side beginning with a 2002 film by Tim Meara starring (a more youthful) Jack & Katya, illustrating the passions of Tolstoy’s novel “The Kreutzer Sonata” in music and dance. Kreutzer is the theme, with Beethoven’s epic violin sonata and the passionate outbursts of Janacek’s String Quartet No .1 “Kreutzer Sonata”.  The relationship and power of these works will be explained by Stephen Johnson
