Commemorating 100 years since the end of WW1, and 80 years since the pogrom known as Krystallnacht, an atrocity which is at the centre of the principal work of this concert. Tippett's oratorio, A Child of Our Time, is notable not only for its graphic musical description but also for the matchless arrangements of the five spirituals which frame the main sections of the work. In contrast is the elegant austerity of Faure's Requiem. We will be joined by the Northern Chamber Orchestra and a distinguished quartet of soloists.
