Donald Runnicles Conducts The Protecting Veil

When:
Start:Tue 27 Feb 2024
End:Wed 28 Feb 2024
Details:
Principal Guest Conductor Sir Donald Runnicles has created a program of inspiring, uplifting music for the spirit, with works by Wagner, Tavener and Mendelssohn.

Wagner’s ‘Good Friday Spell’ from Parsifal is the ideal way into this program. A bright and ecstatic celebration of life and the world, the triumphant sound of the brass is enchanting and delightful.

John Tavener was one of the most inspired geniuses of the late 20th century. In The Protecting Veil he created an exquisite universe, awe-inspiring and intensely beautiful. English cellist Matthew Barley is the ideal soloist for this deeply touching meditation for cello and orchestra.

After the contemplation of Tavener, Mendelssohn’s triumphant Fifth Symphony is the perfect way to send you back out into the world.
