The Hilliard Ensemble and Australian Chamber Orchestra



United Kingdom/Australia

SOLD OUT

An ensemble famous for mesmerising performances and chart topping recordings of early and contemporary vocal music and a chamber orchestra renowned for inspired programs collaborate for the first time.

Gregorian chant and French medieval hymn hypnotically intertwine with Edwards' orchestral setting of Veni Creator Spiritus (Come Holy Spirit); and a cappella prayers from 15th century England and Arvo Pärt join Raskatov's Russian Orthodox chant setting.

This concert also celebrates the luscious ACO string sound with two opulent works by Elgar and Arensky after Tchaikovsky.

Program
Elgar: Serenade for strings
Sheryngham: Ah, Gentle Jesu
Raskatov: Obikhod (Australian Premiere)
Pärt: Most Holy Mother of God
Gregorian Chant: Veni Creator Spiritus
Anon (French Medieval): Veni Creator Spiritus
Edwards: Veni Creator Spiritus
Arensky: Variations on a theme by Tchaikovsky
