This concert takes us on a journey from the brightness of day into the shadows of evening. The unique sonority of solo cello with chamber choir is explored through a varied programme contrasting the lush romantic textures of Arensky and Rheinberger with the startling contemporary innovations of Giovanni Sollima and Sam Perkin (new commission). In Nystedt’s Stabat Mater the journey into darkness concludes with a glimpse of glory, the cello acting as expressive commentary on the ancient text.
This concert can be viewed live at 5pm, after which the recording will be available to watch until 5pm on Thursday 11 March.
Due to the ever changing circumstances, ticket sales for this event are on hold until further notice.
