Samuel Barber: Mutations from Bach
Dmitri Shostakovich: Symphony no. 14 op. 135
Johann Sebastian Bach: Air from the Suite in D major
The 25th anniversary concert of ‘Music in the Cathedral’ features music from the 17th to the 20th century. The opening number by Barber brings Bach into the 20th century with variations on the chorale Christe, du Lamm Gottes. Shostakovich’s Symphony no. 14 is actually a song cycle with eleven numbers all about premature death. The programme concludes with one of the great classics of all time, also known as the ‘Air on the G string’. Markus Lehtinen, who conducted our Independence Day concert in 2020, returns.
