Classical music

The Bach Choir - Alexander Nevsky

Part of Classical Season 2017/18

Experience two modern day masterpieces: Prokofiev’s Alexander Nevsky and Bernstein’s Chichester Psalms.

Composed for the film of the same name in 1938, Alexander Nevsky incorporates folk melodies, the sorrow of the battlefield, and a battle which builds to a spectacular climax.

Alongside this, we have Bernstein’s musical depiction of peace and unity, using a magical blend of the Christian Choral tradition and Hebrew verse.
