Sheffield Philharmonic's concert season in Sheffield will start with a fantastic ‘up close and personal’ concert in the beautiful St Mark’s church in Broomhill.
They will sing Durufle’s gorgeous Requiem, composed between 1941 and 1947 and incorporating themes from the Gregorian “Mass for the Dead”.
In the first half you’ll hear Tavener’s hauntingly beautiful Syvati and Saint-Saens’ Priere, both featuring Simon Turner, celebrated cellist with the Hallé, and Saint-Saens’ Quam Dilecta.
The evening will also feature not one but two world premieres! Sheffield musician Robin Morton and Chorus accompanist Rachel Fright were both winners in the Stella Jockel Young Composer Competition in March 2023, and you will hear both versions of their Sheffield Nocturne in the first half.
Sheffield Philharmonic Chorus, accompanied by Darius Battiwalla – conductor, Margaret McDonald – mezzo soprano, Simon Turner – cello and Neil Taylor – organ.
