This special evening will see the young virtuoso mezzo-soprano Josipa Bainac, accompanied by pianist David Hausknecht and violist Alexander Znamenskiy, perform compositions by Austrian and English composers inspired by the opposing country's language.
The concert has a unique symbiotic twist: Pieces inspired by Austrian poetry from the English composers Nicholas Ansdell-Evans as well as Lennox and Michael Berkeley are paired with Austrian compositions from Egon Wellesz, Kurt Schwertsik and Akos Banlaky, inspired by poetry in the English language.
