Northern European string music, pure in sound but so rich in emotion, conjures an atmosphere of intense serenity. In this late night Rush Hour, atmospheric lighting creates an aura of stillness in which the spirit of the music can soar.

In Fratres, the timbre of the music evolves slowly, morphing in meaning and resonance as it travels through the orchestra. Three lonely chimes of a bell cast a mesmerising spell over Pärt’s tribute to Britten and, in turn, Vasks pays homage to Pärt in his story of a wanderer whose life unfolds against the unchanging backdrop of eternity.
