Worldwide celebrations mark the quatercentenary of William Shakespeare in 2016. His dramatic artistry transcends societal boundaries and continues to inspire composers across generations and borders. With readings from Shakespeare's works, The Soloists of the Oxford Philharmonic perform music written across diverse artistic dynasties, hundreds of years apart: all are united, though, by Shakespeare's visionary understanding of the human heart.
