    The Choral Pilgrimage 2014: The Voice of the Turtle Dove | The Sixteen
    Harry Christophers, The Sixteen
    The Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ the King Liverpool L3 5TQ
    United Kingdom

    For its 14th Choral Pilgrimage The Sixteen and Harry Christophers revisit the golden age of renaissance polyphony with a stunning programme of music by English composers John Sheppard, Richard Davy and William Mundy.

    Mundy’s monumental work Vox patris caelestis, the text of which comes from the Song of Songs, can be considered as the culmination of the great antiphon tradition, while Sheppard's musical style contains all the grandness of English harmonic invention. This year’s programme includes Sheppard’s glorious seven-part work Libera nos as well as his sublime Gaude, gaude, gaude Maria. Davy is the second most represented of all the composers in the Eton Choirbook and the mere fact that his music survived the Reformation is nothing short of a miracle. It is believed he wrote his monumental O Domine caeli terraeque in the span of a single day during his time at Magdalen College, Oxford.

    Harry Christophers says of the 2014 tour ‘Each one of these works is a real gem just waiting to be discovered by a wider audience. This music is part of our great heritage and I look forward to you joining us on this pilgrimage of discovery.’

    Shostakovich, Prokofiev and Lindberg | London Philharmonic Orchestra
    Jean-Efflam Bavouzet, London Philharmonic Orchestra, Vladimir Jurowski
    Royal Festival Hall London SE1 8XX
    United Kingdom

    In 1943, at the height of the war, Dmitri Shostakovich began work on his 8th Symphony, a musical canvas in which he attempted to confront and understand the catastrophic violence and suffering Russians were being forced to witness daily. In the Symphony’s chilling Allegro is Shostakovich’s vision of the machine of war; the music driven forward by tension, not through tunes but through mechanical and demonic rhythms.

    To open the season, Vladimir Jurowski also conducts Prokofiev’s scurrying 3rd Piano Concerto and Chorale – a luminous masterpiece after Bach by new Composer in Residence Magnus Lindberg, one of the greatest orchestral craftsmen alive.

    Free pre-concert event | Royal Festival Hall, London | 6:00pm

    Magnus Lindberg conducts the LPO's Foyle Future Firsts in the London premiere of his stunning piece Souvenir, described in the New York Times as 'shivering, diaphanous and pungent.'

    Magnus Lindberg (1958-)
    Concerto for Piano and Orchestra No 3 in C
    Sergey Prokofiev (1891-1953)
