Angélique Kidjo Sings Glass

Maison symphonique March 19, 2025

While Beethoven poetically depicted birdsong and rippling streams, Janáček, a stark observer, contrasted the stillness of forest life with the conflict-filled world of humans. Meanwhile, Glass drew inspiration from African poems that tell of the creation myth and deities of the ancient Ifé Empire, fuelling the imagination of Angélique Kidjo, who brings these legends to life with vocal depth and power.
