'Love Is Love' Program

The Carr-Petrova Duo offers a program exploring the different types of love we, as humans, are able to experience: parental love, romantic love, brotherly love, divine love, self-love… This program engages with the music of Vivian Fung, Clara and Robert Schumann, Leoš Janacek, Nico Muhly, Fanny Mendelssohn and Andrea Casarrubios, presenting newly commissioned works for this project and original transcriptions alongside pre-existing masterpieces. As one of the most cherished feelings or states of consciousness a human can experience, Love is both simple and complex, different for each one of us, elusive and omnipresent; and it continues to be an experience all human beings are drawn to repeatedly regardless of the difficulty, pain, or challenge.
