Man as a dreamer would rather withdraw into his own visions, far from the hectic reality. In this dream program, pearls from French choral music will be featured alongside still works by David Lang. The music of David Lang (winner of the Pulitzer Prize 2008) finds an increasingly large audience. It is not without reason that our program Again and Again with music by Lang in 2018 was well appreciated. Gabriel Fauré and Camille Saint-Saëns are among the most loved French composers of all time and take you to another world in these dreamy works. The Psalm symphonyfinally, perhaps the most magical sound of the widely admired psalm 150 by one of the most visionary dreamers in 20th-century music history: Igor Stravinsky. Due to its composition, this program is a fantastic introduction for new listeners to choral music.
