This eclectic programme commences with Kirill’s new arrangement of Bach’s Ein feste Burg ist unser Gott, followed by music of the pioneering American composer Charles Ives who described his The Unanswered Question as “a cosmic landscape”. Britten’s admiration for Mahler’s music led to his arrangement for small orchestra of the Third Symphony’s second movement, whilst Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony, was memorably dubbed by Wagner as the “Apotheosis of the Dance”.
