Overview

Brodsky Quartet with 'Trees, Walls and Cities', a newly commissioned song-cycle which links the 'walled' cities of Derry, London, Utrecht, Berlin, Vienna, Dubrovnik, Nicosia and Jerusalem. Each song is created by a local composer working with either an existing text or, more often, with a neighbouring poet. The songs reach symbolically across the walls which divide people and the tree featured in each case represents peace, wisdom and life itself. Nigel Osborne's music frames the cycle and links the chain of cities. Christopher Norby's 'Once There Was an Island', to a text by Matt Jennings, opens the song-cycle.
