This concert takes us on a journey from the brightness of day into the shadows of evening. The unique sonority of solo cello with chamber choir is explored through a varied programme contrasting the lush romantic textures of Arensky and Rheinberger with the startling contemporary innovations of Giovanni Sollima and Sam Perkin (new commission). In Nystedt’s Stabat Mater the journey into darkness concludes with a glimpse of glory, the cello acting as expressive commentary on the ancient text.
