An evocative and intimate reimagining of Schubert and Schumann’s best-loved songs, Restless Love shuns beautiful, melodic singing and, instead, embraces the raw, guttural emotions of love, anger and loss. Arranged and orchestrated by renowned Dutch composer and pianist Reinbert de Leeuw, this powerful work is performed by Hebrides Ensemble in a setting reminiscent of the Weimar cabaret scene. A darkly captivating and entertaining production.
