70th anniversary of the Munich Radio Orchestra: Paradisi gloria

Lovely Rose

Friday, 6 May 2022, 6:00 pm
Munich, Studio 1 im Funkhaus

A ‘mystical combination’: the confirmed atheist Ralph Vaughan Williams (1872–1958) produced a setting of 17th-century poems by the poet-priest George Herbert. His Five Mystical Songs of 1911 offer an unwavering view of highly intimate meditations, ending in a triumphant antiphon. Like Bach, John Rutter (b. 1945), in his Magnificat of 1990, added a movement to the Canticle of Mary from the New Testament – namely, lines from a 15th-century English poem. Here he deftly combines the radiant sound of trumpets with echoes from “cheerful Latin American celebrations of the Virgin”.

About the performers

The Bavarian Radio Chorus has been a welcome guest in the Paradisi Gloria series from the very start. Nor is this the first time it has joined forces with the Munich Radio Orchestra and Ivan Repušić to create a musical highlight: we need only recall their performance of the Croatian Glagolithic Requiem. Even in an all-English programme we can expect to hear delicate timbres and dramatic choral singing under the baton of the Munich Radio Orchestra’s principal conductor.

Tickets

The advance ticket sales will be postponed until further notice due to the uncertain capacities in autumn caused by Corona. Perhaps tickets will go on sale at short notice.
