The RCS Symphony Orchestra welcomes back conductor, Michael Seal.
This concert opens with Mighty River, written by RCS Visiting Professor of Composition, Errollyn Wallen. Commissioned to mark the bicentenary of the Abolition of the Slave Trade, spirituals and gospel music are at the heart of this work which evokes the movement of a river to the sea. Stravinsky’s Symphony in Three Movements, the first of his compositions after emigrating to the USA, is a typical celebration of rhythm, synonymous with many of Stravinsky’s works. Finally, in celebration of 150 years since Sergei Rachmaninov’s birth, the RCS Symphony Orchestra performs his last composition, Symphonic Dances, written two years before his death.
