Decoda returns to the Barbican with a teetering, careening, and clarifying exploration of form, manifested in the not-quite-Fantasy of Benjamin Britten, 21st century approaches to folk music from Gabriela Lena Frank and Iva Bittova, architectural follies and literary sonnets from young phenom Andrew Norman, and perhaps the form's ultimate conveyer, Mozart.
Join Decoda for an unforgettable evening of energetic, enlightening, and satisfying music-making.
