About this Event

On the Nature of Daylight explores the gradual return of light marked by the winter solstice. As we look through thin sunbeams and frosted windows, we find warmth and comfort in the measured lengthening of the days. The program opens with Winter from Vivaldi’s beloved Four Seasons, featuring acclaimed violin soloist Nicholas Kitchen, followed by Max Richter's On the Nature of Daylight, a musical meditation that juxtaposes desolation with pure beauty and gentleness. We finish with Mendelssohn’s radiant Octet for Strings, which with its youthful brilliance, captures the promise of spring.
