Performed by the French ensemble Les Voix Étouffées, with a programme of works by composers who fell victim to state persecution and terror, this concert will be introduced with a debate between philosopher Andrew Bowie and musicologist Erik Levi. What does the loss and reconstruction of such pieces mean for music and freedom of expression, aesthetically, historically, and philosophically?
