The University of Southampton Voices return with vocalist Clara Sanabras to perform a selection of works from two of her albums, arranged for choir and soloist by composer and choir director Harvey Brough.
Scattered Flight: Songs of Spanish Exile is an elegy to the experience of exile, told in Catalan, Spanish and English, featuring brand new compositions, as well as traditional material referencing not only the Civil War but also the Spanish Diaspora of 1492.
More than a simple soundtrack to the play, A Hum About Mine Ears takes some of The Tempest’s ideas and themes – loss, retrieval, exile and reunion – and relates them to Sanabras’s own experiences as a modern woman and emigrant. Drawing on elements from blues and jazz to European folk, this is one of Shakespeare’s most famous works unravelled in a performance as deep, mysterious and expansive as The Tempest itself.
