University of Kent Chorus and Symphony Orchestra

Two wonderfully powerful orchestral works frame this concert

Susan Wanless conductor

Nielsen – Helios Overture
Kodaly – Missa Brevis
Fauré – Pavane (choral version)
Richard Strauss – Symphonic Poem Tod und Verklärung

One depicting the transition from silence and darkness to a glorious sunrise over the Aegean Sea, the other describing the recollections of a dying artist and his transfiguration to the blazing ‘eternal cosmos’ – surely one of the most inspirational finales in the repertoire. Equally uplifting is Kodaly’s Missa Brevis, composed in the basement of the Opera House amidst the bombardment of Budapest in 1944, yet full of moments of great optimism and peace.
