The legendary beauty of Longwood is mirrored in the swirling sounds and provocative textures of works for cello and choir by John Tavener and Pēteris Vasks; the concert focuses on light - of this world and beyond - in additional works of Ko Matsushita, Edwin Fissinger, and Eriks Esenvalds, whose stunning timbres mixing tuned water glasses with voices bring a new dimension to musical depictions of light.
