Szymanowski Stabat mater
Beethoven Symphony No.9 in D minor, Op.125 ‘Choral’

University Choir and Philharmonia last performed Beethoven Symphony No.9 under the baton of Sir Charles Mackerras in 1999 so it is fitting that the University’s Sir Charles Mackerras Conducting Fellow Jonathan Tilbrook conducts the University Philharmonia and Choir in this masterpiece.

In the first half Choir Director Calum Fraser conducts Szymanowski’s moving Stabat mater which was another work originally commissioned by the Princess de Polignac as a requiem sung in Polish and completed in 1925.
