I'm a Rock 'n' Roll Star
Wed 20 - Sat 23 May 2020
Wilton's Music Hall, 1 Graces Alley, London, E1 8JB
Mozart and Vivaldi were the original rock ‘n’ roll stars. Both took cities famed for parties by storm, were virtuoso performers as well as composers, and led lives that were as chaotic and incident filled as any rock ’n’ roll colossus from the 60s, 70s or 80s.
In May 2020, CLS presents the music of these incredible composers in the exhilarating and intimate atmosphere that they would have known in their own day – more akin to a small-scale gig than the concert hall – at Wilton’s Music Hall. Joining them are pianist Robert Levin and Norwegian violinist Terje Tønnesen who each recapture the party spirit and decadence of the composers’ cities – Mozart’s enlightenment Vienna and Vivaldi’s baroque Venice.
I'm a Rock 'n' Roll Star is part of CLS's Worlds Colliding series in London, supported by the John Ellerman Foundation.
