Concert Information

As part of BBC Radio 3’s celebration of one of the greatest composers of the Romantic period, Hector Berlioz. Nicolas Kruger conducts the BBC Singers in a concert of songs and choral music by Berlioz. The Romantic Movement promoted nature and the liberation of the emotions, this is reflected in the composer’s choral music. From the striking and dramatic La belle Isabeau: conte pendant l'orage to one of Berlioz's most lyrical and passionate works Irlande (Neuf mélodies), inspired by Thomas Moore’s poetry, there is considerable intensity of emotion and depth of feeling. Join the BBC Singers as they celebrate the work of Berlioz, the bohemian composer.
