Peer Gynt And The Sea.


  • Čiurlionis The Sea (UK premiere)35′
  • Grieg Peer Gynt: Incidental Music50′

Peer Gynt is a prankster, an adventurer and a rogue, and everyone knows some of the wonderfully memorable music that Grieg wrote to accompany his exploits. But tonight Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla has another story to tell – a beautiful rarity from her native Lithuania – and another dimension to share, as Birmingham-born artist Norman Perryman creates colours and images to complement the music, live in concert.

CBSO+, 5.45pm: Rokas Zubovas, great-grandson of tonight’s featured composer Mikalojus Konstantinas Čiurlionis, talks about and performs his grandfather’s piano compositions.

In the Foyer, 14 & 16 February (FREE)
