Orchestre des Champs Elysees

Philippe Herreweghe conducts the period-instrument Orchestre des Champs-Elysees and his Collegium Vocale Gent in a spiritually themed programme. Bruckner's monumental yet serene final symphony left unfinished at his death is coupled with the massively scored Te Deum which Mahler described as 'written for the tongues of angels, heaven-blest, chastened hearts, and souls purified in the fire!' The concert opens with a powerful choral meditation based on a Goethe text about the fate of man. Donald MacLeod presents the concert from the Usher Hall in Edinburgh.
