Vaughan Williams: Five Mystical Songs, Elgar: Cello Concerto, Walton: Belshazzar’s Feast



Guildford Choral | The Chichester Singers

Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

Baritone: Gareth Brynmor John | Cello: Pavlos Carvalho

Conductor: Jonathan Willcocks



Guildford Choral's summer concert showcases the work of three great English composers from the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries: Walton, Elgar and Vaughan Williams.

First, Elgar's Cello Concerto – the hauntingly beautiful and contemplative cornerstone of the solo cello repertoire, performed by award-winning Pavlos Carvalho, followed by the simply masterful Five Mystical Songs, by Vaughan-Williams, composed for the Three Choirs Festival in 1911. Finally, bringing the concert to a rousing conclusion, Walton's biblical story about the lavish feast thrown by the Babylonian King Belshazzar. First performed in 1931 to great acclaim, Belshazzar's Feast was, however, not without its share of controversy, with its raucous choruses and overt revelry in the fall of the enemy, resulting in a ban from performance in cathedrals.

Scored for a large orchestra, extensive percussion and huge chorus, this will be performed with the world-renowned Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and conducted by Jonathan Willcocks, distinguished Musical Director of both Guildford Choral and Chichester Singers.
