Travel back to the 1870s as the English Arts Chorale and Orchestra present two works premiered within a year.
Sung entirely from memory, The English Arts Chorale’s performance of Verdi’s mighty Requiem has a striking immediacy.
The EAC is delighted to welcome back British soprano Linda Richardson; flying in from Melbourne to complete the ladies’ voices ensemble is English mezzo-soprano Emily Bauer-Jones.
Performing Tchaikovsky’s First Piano Concerto, the young Sicilian pianist Giuseppe Guarrera was a prize-winner at the Montréal International Competition and won five other awards including the People’s Choice.
He has appeared as a soloist with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, the Royal Philharmonic, Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal, and the Orchestra del Teatro la Fenice.
The concert opens with Sir Hubert Parry’s coronation anthem I Was Glad.
