Nicholas Collon conductor
Iestyn Davies countertenor
Aurora Orchestra

Internationally-acclaimed countertenor Iestyn Davies joins the Aurora Orchestra as it looks heavenwards for a programme which contemplates virtue, peace, and celestial heights. Bach’s meditation on purity and the resistance of sin Widerstehe doch der Sünde is performed alongside Gluck’s ravishing depiction of the wonder of Elysium from the opera Orfeo ed Euridice, and works by two of the brightest stars in the firmament of living composers, Thomas Adès and Nico Muhly (including an arrangement of Herbert Howells’ King David created by Muhly specially for this concert). Schubert’s effervescent Fifth Symphony – written before the composer’s 20th birthday and filled with optimism and vitality – completes a sparkling programme.
