Reflektor Elbphilharmonie, Hamburg

Max Richter: VOICES

Voices is a homage to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, a hopeful and optimistic work for “negative orchestra”, choir, electronics, soprano, violin and piano, in which Max Richter aimed to create a space in which musicians and the audience could engage with the “inspirational principles” of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The “negative orchestra” – a response to the world in 2020 – turns the orchestra on its head: cellos and bass dominate, their deep sound intermittently punctuated by the violin and soprano. In addition to the music, the composer has recorded hundreds of voices from around the world reading out parts of the Human Rights Declaration in their native tongues – these are the “voices” of the work’s title.

St Martin-in-the-Fields, London

Gardiner conducts Bach: Christmas Oratorio (Parts 4-6)

Sir John Eliot Gardiner once said of Johann Sebastian Bach that “The range of his art, his imagination, and his creative response to different stimuli, is apparently endless.” The works of this seminal figure of the Baroque are at the heart of the conductor’s stylistically extremely diverse repertoire and in this live broadcast Gardiner performs the first three cantatas of the Christmas Oratorio with the ensembles he founded and spearheaded the modern revolution in Bach performance – the Monteverdi Choir and the English Baroque Soloists. Although nearly 300 years have now passed since its premiere, Bach’s work remains irresistible in its energy and inspiration.

Ensembles: English Baroque Soloists, Monteverdi Choir

Conductor: John Eliot Gardiner

Repeat: 23.12.2022, 22:00 & 24.11.2022, 08:00 (GMT)
