WIN A PAIR OF TICKETS TO SEE PENDERECKI CONDUCT THE RNCM AT BRIDGEWATER HALL
Northern Soul has teamed up with the RNCM to offer five readers a pair of tickets to see Polish composer Krzysztof Penderecki conduct the RNCM Symphony Orchestra, Chorus and Chamber Choir in the UK première of his Seventh Symphony Seven Gates of Jerusalem at The Bridgewater Hall in Manchester on Friday June 26, 2015.*
Commissioned for the third millennium celebration of the city of Jerusalem, this formidable work is rarely performed due to the sheer forces required, and remains one of Penderecki’s most powerful and dramatic pieces to date.
Michelle Castelletti, RNCM artistic director, said: “I have been gripped by Krzysztof Penderecki ever since I heard his Threnody for the Victims of Hiroshima and St Luke Passion. The intensity of these creations and sheer emotive power they invoke are staggering. But, beyond this, Penderecki’s work is also remarkable for its change of style, and its evolution towards a majestic lyricism, as can be seen in his magnificent Seven Gates of Jerusalem. I am thrilled, not only because the RNCM will be giving the UK première, but because he will be conducting the performance himself.”
Following the concert, Michelle will present Penderecki, who was born in Dębica in 1933 and whose catalogue of work includes orchestral, opera and film music (the composer has written for films including The Shining and The Exorcist), with Fellowship of the RNCM. To learn more click here.
