Concert Information

The BBC Singers and Chief Conductor Sofi Jeannin present a concert of Russian choral music, focusing on works by Tchaikovsky and Stravinsky. 60 years ago, Stravinsky completed the missing voice parts to Guesualdo’s Tres sacrae cantiones. The result is a fascinating fusion of the work of both composers, and is paired with three movements from Guesualdo’s Sacrarum cantionum alongside simple warmth of Tchaikovsky’s anthems for the Russian Orthodox Church.
