Trees, Walls, Cities, is a song cycle commissioned for the Brodsky Quartet and mezzo-soprano Loré Lixenberg, linking various cities in creative reconciliation. The songs, written by local composers and poets, are brought together in an interlocking suite of musical material (composed by Nigel Osborne), which creates a coherent journey. Manifesto tracts, original scores, sound poems and pieces of art feature alongside the performance, which is preceeded by works for string quartet by Turina, Puccini, Alvarez and Golijov.
