Steven Grahl chorus master
Marios Papadopoulos piano/conductor
The Choir of Christ Church Cathedral joins the Orchestra for an evening given over to Stravinsky at his most meticulous and exalted. The composer's fascination with the particular sonority of wind instruments delivered some of his most sophisticated works, including the pithy Symphonies of Wind Instruments and perky Octet. After the ingenious Concerto for Piano and Winds, in a rare performance directed from the piano by Marios Papadopoulos, we hear Stravinsky at his most spiritual, and the Symphony of Psalms that pivots on what the composer described as 'a song to be danced', Psalm 150.
