Orchestra of the Swan return to Drapers' Hall for 'Earthcycle'.

Earthcycle contemplates humanity’s impact on Earth’s environment and the disruption of its natural rhythms. Vivaldi’s pioneering quartet of programmatic concerti, written almost 300 years ago, is performed alongside a newly commissioned version by baroque/jazz musician and composer David Gordon and interspersed with traditional folk songs related to the theme of the seasons.

Enhanced by discreet lighting and specially created contextual footage Earthcycle highlights the C21st greatest concern whilst celebrating nature and our place within it.
