Heinrich von BIBER Battalia Louis ANDRIESSEN Workers Union James MACMILLAN Cantos Sagrados Benjamin BRITTEN Advance Democracy STRAVINSKY The Soldier’s Tale: Suite (selections) A 17th-century ‘battle’ piece opens this intriguing concert which explores conflict in music. Andriessen’s Workers Union wrestles with the ideas of individual freedom versus rhythmic discipline as a metaphor for the problems of organising and carrying out political action. MacMillan’s Cantos Sagrados sets poems concerned with political repression in Latin America alongside religious texts. Britten’s short a cappella work Advance Democracy was composed at the time of the Munich crisis in 1938. Stravinsky’s The Soldier’s Tale represents the ultimate conflict as a soldier makes a Faustian pact with the devil. Duration: approximately 70 minutes, no interval
