Program

According to British composer Philip Sparke, “I started to write the piece with a steady tempo, but I had no idea where it would take me”. The result was his most thrilling work. Chinese composer Chen Yi brings us cultural sounds from her country with a spectacular offering full of exoticism and energy. The European contribution comes in two parts; the first part is from Italian composer Respighi, with a work inspired by the mystery and majesty of medieval Scottish castles, and the second is one of the key chapters of romantic music - Isolde’s ‘love death’, where she is united with her beloved to access a higher energy as the notes of one of the most inspired of Wagner’s pieces are played.
