Ives, Barber, Zimmermann & Tippett
BBC SO Principal Guest Conductor David Robertson begins with two iconic American pieces before turning to works in which the emotive force of the African American spiritual is harnessed by composers of the old world. In A Child of Our Time Tippett drew in five spirituals to reaffirm the indispensable human values of compassion and brotherhood. Star trumpeter H?kan Hardenberger returns and an impressive array of international singing talent features alongside tonight's newly formed youthful chorus. Finish time approx. 22:00
