An afternoon of choral masterpieces and hopeful beauty
Fauré Cantique de Jean Racine
Schumann Symffoni Rhif 4
Lose yourself in the lush and intense choral writing of Fauré’s Cantique de Jean Racine. Full of dignity, elegance, and refined simplicity, WNO Chorus take centre stage to sing this award-winning piece, performing alongside WNO Orchestra and WNO Music Director Tomáš Hanus.
A feverishly passionate showstopper, experience an immersive and uninterrupted flow of music with Schumann’s Symphony No 4. Breaking away from the symphonic tradition, this continuous cycle of drama features the composer’s trademark high intensity with pockets of lightness and joy. It is today considered the most romantic of all his symphonies.
Completing the afternoon, a journey from uncertainty into hope with Mozart’s timeless choral masterpiece, Requiem. Bursting with the same theatre and humanity of his stage works, WNO Chorus and are joined by soloists Sophie Bevan, Kayleigh Decker, Egor Zhuravskii and James Platt.
Approximately one hour and 55 minutes, including one interval
Presented as part of the Cardiff Classical Series
