In 1931 William Walton blew British choral music sky-high. Big, brassy and shamelessly savage, Belshazzar’s Feast shocked audiences back then, and it still knocks you backwards today. It’s an electrifying way to end Thomas Søndergård’s first Season as Music Director, but he’s got a couple more surprises up his sleeve: Sibelius’ atmospheric take on the same biblical tale, and Elgar’s Cello Concerto. You’ll have heard it before – but not the way Truls Mørk plays it!

 

Running order

Sibelius: Belshazzar’s Feast Suite

Elgar: Cello Concerto
