Event Information

Duration: 2 hours 20 minutes

Earthcyle is a unique hybrid concert experience, that highlights the 21st century’s greatest concern – climate change – whilst celebrating nature and our place within it. A Q&A session with Artistic Director/violinist David Le Page alongside jazz/baroque composer David Gordon, would precede a 32-minute screening of Orchestra of the Swan’s Earthcycle digital concert featuring 2 of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons concertos, 2 traditional folk songs with singer Jackie Oates, and David Gordon’s compelling response to Vivaldi’s seasonal representation. A live performance with violin, cello, bass and piano enhanced by specialist lighting and contextual footage would make up the second half of the evening, contrasting the shift in perspective towards nature, between baroque composers and their 20th/21st century equivalents from the jazz genre – a timely project that finds a thrilling way to engage with humanity’s most urgent threat.
