Helena Winkelman’s Papa Haydn’s Parrot is an idiosyncratic tribute to Haydn and the birds that inspired him. It draws upon her deep knowledge of the classical heritage to reinvent the past for a modern context. In a tremendous assertion of personal strength, Jean Sibelius’ Voces intimae delves deep into his emotional life, laying him bare for the audience to witness.
