2020: Christmas Oratorio

2020 VISION

James MacMillan Christmas Oratorio (world premiere)

Vladimir Jurowski conductor
Mary Bevan soprano
Christopher Maltman baritone
London Philharmonic Choir
London Philharmonic Orchestra

When James MacMillan writes a new choral work, the world takes notice. It’s no secret that MacMillan’s music is inspired by a profound and passionate religious faith – but it’s equally true that he writes with an energy, a commitment and an imaginative fire that give his music a universal appeal. ‘Beauty is at the heart of our Christian faith’, he says, and there’s little doubt that his new Christmas Oratorio will find something utterly original in this gentlest and most joyous of sacred stories. With Vladimir Jurowski conducting the London Philharmonic Choir and two outstanding soloists, this world premiere will be a major occasion for listeners of all faiths, or none.

*Commissioned by the London Philharmonic Orchestra, NTR Zaterdag Matinee, Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and the New York Philharmonic Orchestra.

Please note there will be an interval during this performance.
