The Quilter Cheviot Krivine Series

 

In this grand and impressive music, Berlioz tells the story of Christ's birth and infancy as an immense choral epic. The beautiful Shepherd’s Farewell has taken on a life of its own as a Christmas carol, but it is just one of the magical moments in this score. The Slaughter of the Innocents is evoked with terrible vividness, the flight to Egypt and the manger scene all bring forth beautiful music from one of the all-time great orchestrators, the French Romantic Hector Berlioz.

Principal Guest Conductor Emmanuel Krivine brings the story to life through the musicians, a quartet of soloists and the SCO Chorus who are expertly coached by Chorus Director Gregory Batsleer.
