The Deer’s Cry – Music by Byrd and Pärt

An evening of romance in all its joy and, sometimes, heartache. We travel to the Vienna of Strauss, the Paris of Debussy to Spain and Hungary with songs and dances which – in Byron’s words – tell of “the first kiss of love and its remembrance”. From Ireland there is Danny Boy, further east a dashing Hussar’s March.
