Suppressed Voices: Music of the Banished
March 22 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
Cleveland-based Burning River Baroque presents Suppressed Voices: Music of the Banished. Music has long offered a space for outsiders to find a voice, and classical composers have often been at the forefront of political and social change. Suppressed Voices is a compelling program that showcases characters and composers who were banished from their homelands. From the character of Agrippina, a political exile in G.F. Handel’s cantata, to composers like Johann Rosenmüller, Evaristo Felice dall’Abaco, and Peter Philips who were forced to flee their homelands for various social, political, and religious reasons, Suppressed Voices will challenge audiences’ expectations and highlight the accomplishments of those who overcame great adversity.
