About the Concert

Pilgrimage, Contemplation and Exquisitely Rendered Sound Worlds

The Swan presents Labyrinths, a very special performance based on their stunning new album which will be released in November on Signum Classics
Conceived and recorded during the pandemic. Labyrinths explores themes of isolation, distance and a longing for human connection. Ideas of pilgrimage, contemplation and enlightenment are filtered through beautifully atmospheric and exquisitely rendered sound worlds.

Labyrinths have been an important part of humanity’s cultural landscape for thousands of years, from the Ancient Greek myth of Theseus and the Minotaur to the intriguing stories of Jorge Luis Borges and Umberto Eco. Our overwhelming desire to find patterns and ‘the hidden truth’ is perhaps nowhere more evident than in the subversive and complex vistas of music.
