Songs in Time of War: PhoeNX Ensemble Ft. Lawrence Wiliford
PhoeNX Ensemble and soloist Lawrence Wiliford join to bring a new cross-cultural offering of Alec Roth’s deeply moving Songs in Time of War, breathing new life into the poetry of Du Fu (ca. 750 CE) as set by Vikram Seth.
Through music and song, we are exposed to a world in which conflict, turmoil and war were experienced by Du Fu. Stories of family, friends, neighbours, strangers, seasons, skies and stars are delivered with deep honesty, compassion, love and beauty.
