Concert Information

Sofi Jeannin begins her tenure as Chief Conductor of the BBC Singers with a programme of music celebrating French choral music.

Arguably, from the renaissance period there is nothing to rival Brumel’s Earthquake Mass for 24 voices. The BBC Singers perform the work alongside Poulenc’s 1943 composition Figure humaine - a truly magnificent choral masterpiece that was written at the height of the Second World War and captures themes of death, war, oppression and liberty. This particular performance of Figure humaine includes contemporary jazz improvisations that are interspersed between the music. Performed by BBC New Generation Artist Misha Mullov-Abbado and friends.
