Pure beauty with the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra, conductor Barbara Hannigan and the Gothenburg Symphony Choir.
The conducting soprano Barbara Hannigan always surprises her audiences with well-considered and innovative concerts. On this occasion she gathers the ascension of Handel’s Messiah, Stravinsky’s choral tribute to the Lord in the firmament of his power and symphonies for wind instruments, and Ligeti’s harmonic crystal sounds – music that has triumphed over gravity. Pure beauty from three orchestral masters who have made invaluable contributions to the history of music.
Igor Stravinsky is considered perhaps the most significant and influential composer of the 20th century. His contribution to music history is invaluable and his influence on both his contemporary and subsequent generations of composers places him in a special position in music history.
Barbara Hannigan is the principal guest conductor of the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra.
The previously announced Nuages from Debussy’s Nocturner have been replaced by Stravinsky’s Symphonies for Wind instruments.
