The Eternal Flame

About This Show

One hundred years after WW1’s guns fell silent, we hear four composers’ surveys of a world in turmoil: and they might not be what you expect. Debussy broods on sacrifice, while Janáček stares boldly into the flames of a vision that’s both apocalyptic and transcendent. And then, as the shockwaves grow calmer, Stravinsky contemplates mortality with open eyes and piercing intelligence – while Finland’s Magnus Lindberg contributes something completely new, at a moment when all of Europe pauses to remember. Vladimir Jurowski conducts a concert that throws a very personal light on a dark century.
