Tickets "at the door" - until sold out
  1. Berceuse héroïque - Claude Debussy
  2. Triumph to exist - Magnus Lindberg
  3. Requiem Canticles - Igor Stravinsky
  4. Vecné evangelium 'The Eternal Gospel' - Leoš Janácek

One hundred years after WW1’s guns fell silent, we hear four composers’ surveys of a world in turmoil: and they might not be what you expect. Debussy broods on sacrifice, while Janácek stares boldly into the flames of a vision that’s both apocalyptic and transcendent. And then, as the shockwaves grow calmer, Stravinsky contemplates mortality with open eyes and piercing intelligence – while Finland’s Magnus Lindberg contributes something completely new, at a moment when all of Europe pauses to remember. Vladimir Jurowski conducts a concert that throws a very personal light on a dark century.
