PhiloSonia’s “Liaisons III: Britten & Shostakovich” explores the friendship of two composers who recognized each other as kindred spirits, bonded by their similar artistic outlooks.Strongly affected by the turbulent events of the 20th century, each of their musical voices reflected their humanistic ideals and personal
musical voice.
