Gabriel Jackson The World Imagined (festival commission, premiere) 45'
The festival presents a significant commission from one of Britain’s leading choral composers, Gabriel Jackson, renowned for his immediacy and delicacy of expression. Drawing inspiration from the beauty of poetry, philosophy, art and life, The World Imagined is an ecstatic contemplation of creation and humankind’s small place in an infinite cosmos. Jack White’s propulsive Digital Dust opens the first half, followed by Elgar’s enduringly popular Enigma Variations, first heard in their current form at the 1899 Worcester Three Choirs Festival.
This concert will be recorded for future broadcast on BBC Radio 3.
Gabriel Jackson’s The World Imagined supported by the Three Choirs Festival Commissioning Circle
