A Life in Flux is a companion musical programme to the special exhibition Under Changing Skies, featuring prints by Anne Desmet RA. Songs from three regions – Spain, Germany and the Americas – convey kaleidoscopic experiences of change: political upheaval, cultural relocation and shifting landscapes in the natural world. The musical journey spans repertoire from Schumann to Xavier Montsalvatge to Gershwin.
