MARQUEE TV PERFORMANCE NOTES 2020: Interrupted stories – Streamed concert VIVALDI Overture, La verità in cimento SPOHR Symphony No. 2 HONEGGER Pastorale d’été BLISS Rout JAMES MACMILLAN Sinfonietta Mary Bevan soprano London Philharmonic Orchestra, Vladimir Jurowski conductor Life comes at you fast. In 1720, Vivaldi composes a dazzling overture for a carnival. In 1820, after two decades of war and revolution, Louis Spohr salutes his hero Beethoven in a symphony that pulses with drama. In 1920, Arthur Honegger watches sunrise over the Swiss Alps, and Arthur Bliss throws a riotous cocktail party. 2020 hasn’t been quite what anyone expected, either: and while we can’t (yet) end our 2020 Vision series the way we’d planned, with Sir James MacMillan’s new Christmas Oratorio, we’re finishing with a musical tale of hope shattered – and then restored – from one of Britain’s most original living composers. Part of the LPO's 2020 Vision, the concert was filmed on 10 Dec at the RFH ready for streaming on 30 Dec. The performance will be free for 7 days, so one doesn't have to subscribe to Marquee TV to watch/listen to the concert.
