BERLIOZ Grande Messe des Morts
Brian Wright Conductor
Alexander James Edwards Tenor
Goldsmiths Choral Union
Brighton Festival Chorus
Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, including spectacular additional brass, woodwind and percussion, is joined by the combined Goldsmiths Choral Union and the Brighton Festival Chorus for what promises to be one almighty concert featuring Berlioz's Grande Messe des Morts.
Berlioz, who was already no stranger to the opportunities of grandeur and the sense of occasion, wrote this tour de force piece in commemoration of the 'second' French Revolution of 1830.
Brian Wright, also no stranger to this momentous Requiem and the Music Director of Goldsmiths Choral Union, will command his way in the ideal setting of the Royal Albert Hall. With over 500 performers onstage, Berlioz's vision of the last judgement will be a night not to miss.
'The pride of the Festival was the magnificent 'Requiem' conducted by Brian Wright... an interpretation which revealed the bleak beauty of the work as few in my experience have done.' The Sunday Times (BBCSO)
