Details

Norfolk Symphony Orchestra Remembrance and Hope Concert

Programme:

Butterworth - The Banks of Green Willow, Rhapsody Cecil Coles - Behind the Lines: 2 - Cortège Arthur Bliss - 5 pieces from Things to Come Suite Elgar - Sospiri Beethoven - Symphony No. 9

During the past four years, as Centenaries have passed, we have had to endure the horrific memories of the Great War. In November this year, we mark the Armistice. In the first part of our final Remembrance programme, which includes the music of two brilliant young composers killed in the trenches, we experience a journey through the emotions of the time. Beginning in the beauty of the English countryside, we move to the feeling of national pride, through excitement, terror, violence, bleak despair and, finally, desperate heartbreak.

In the second part of the concert, moving towards Hope, we are joined by soloists from English National Opera and the King’s Lynn Festival Chorus in perhaps the most inspiring music ever written, Beethoven’s 9th.
