Gavin Maloney conductor

'The idea of "chorale" is at the heart of this concert. A chorale is traditionally a tune with a simple, stately accompaniment (context). These pieces are all about viewing the object in different light. Sometimes the tune is front and centre, with elaborate and intricate support. Sometimes it's fragile and stark, nearly naked. Sometimes it's fragmented, only a barely discernible ghost. But the music here is always extremely concentrated and meditative. It will lower your heart rate and enrich your spirit.' Read more...
