Baroque specialists The Brook Street Band explore music taking us from the darkness and shadows of deepest night, gaining restorative strength and comfort and delivering hope at the dawn of a new day. The BSB has chosen some of the most beautiful, poignant and uplifting music from the Baroque era to take us through the night, and central to the programme is a new commission by Nitin Sawhney. This has inspired BSB to draw on the Indian classical music tradition, our programme a focal lens on two different musical traditions, a bridge between East and West, past and present, traditional and contemporary.
