Saturday 30 March, Canterbury Cathedral Nave, 7.30pm

The Colyer-Fergusson Cathedral Concert

University of Kent Chorus and Symphony Orchestra

 

Rachel Nicholls soprano
Susan Wanless conductor
Zaneta Balsevic leader

 

Verdi - Stabat Mater
Mendelssohn – Symphony No 4 in A, Italian
Butterworth – A Shropshire Lad, Rhapsody for Orchestra
Poulenc - Gloria

 

A musical ‘grand tour’ of Europe. Italy links the two works in the first half of the concert, beginning with Verdi’s dramatic Stabat Mater, composed at the very end of his life after his famous Requiem. All the intoxicating atmosphere and colours of Italy are then captured in Mendelsson’s fizzing Fourth Symphony, inspired by his own tour of Europe from his native Germany between 1829 and 1831.

 

We are then reminded of the futility of war, with the English composer George Butterworth’s highly personal orchestral setting of Housman’s poem, made all the more poignant by the composer’s tragic death in the trenches in WW1. The concert ends in France with Poulenc’s Gloria, a captivating mixture of mischievous joie de vivre and calm reflection.

 

T: £22, £18, £14, £10, £8
