Verdi Requiem & Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No.1

Part of Classical Season 2019/20

This event has been cancelled as we are currently closed due to the coronavirus crisis.

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.
