**Andrés Orozco-Estrada has had to withdraw from this performance. We are very grateful to Thierry Fischer for stepping in at short notice.

Stravinsky's Violin Concerto begins with a chord that was supposed to be impossible. And in 1930, in his Symphony of Psalms, he created something that truly did seem impossible in that 'low, dishonest decade': a masterpiece of deeply held religious faith, crafted from sounds that felt entirely new. Thierry Fischer’s performance with the London Philharmonic Choir looks set to be one of the landmarks of our Stravinsky journey. He opens with Leonard Bernstein's choral salute to the Symphony, the joyous Chichester Psalms; Stravinsky's own beautiful sacred choral miniatures provide both context and inspiration.
