Van Gogh’s Ear

The tormented voice of Van Gogh is revealed in letters discussing his inner struggles and his strong sensitivity to sound. Van Gogh often found solace in the inspirational power of music, an art whose expressive qualities he tried to emulate in his paintings and whose sensorial qualities permeated his vibrant palette. A script based on his letters to his brother Theo will create a counterpoint to chamber and vocal works by Franck, Fauré, Chausson, and Debussy, including Chausson’s shimmering Chanson perpétuelle for mezzo-soprano and piano quintet.
