Stardust and Souls
18 April, 2024 at 19:30£12
Featuring two world premieres and a gem of the choral repertoire, we’re delighted to welcome back the inimitable Sofi Jeannin alongside the BBC National Orchestra and Chorus of Wales, Dame Evelyn Glennie and BBC Cardiff Singer of the World Audience Prize winner Julieth Lozano Rolong for an evening of musical exploration and discovery.
First a world premiere from Alexander Campkin and his Sounds of Stardust. Dame Evelyn Glennie, percussionist extraordinaire, takes to the stage for the world premiere of Dani Howard’s new percussion concerto, before we celebrate Poulenc’s vocal masterpiece 60 years after his death. Written in response to the death of his close friend, the artist Christian Bérard, the Stabat Mater embraces both light and dark – a true representation of his devout Catholicism, yet witty and effervescent personality.
