Yarmila's Playlist For Our Times
Executive Director, Yarmila Alfonzetti;
As someone with a musicology degree and who works in the performing arts, I usually prioritise intellectual listening, i.e. large nuanced works that need to be heard many times for their layers of complexity (the great symphonic and chamber works of the canon for example). But this is not the time for that…although that time may come soon. This is the time for emotional wandering, spiritual meandering, and the succouring of the soul. This is the playlist for our times. From Satie to Royksopp, from Debussy to Leon Bridges – Take me to your river, I wanna go.
