Disparate Pictures

Sun, 10 Mar 2024

From Georgian London to modern-day Ukraine, from the Austrian Alps to the British night sky, the Canterbury Orchestra perform a quartet of pieces that celebrate landscapes, portray places, and pray for peace.

Brahms’s Second Symphony is paired with Howard Skempton’s Sirens, with themes of space and structure at their heart. Kaminsky’s Te Deum, which symbolises the passing of time in wartime Ukraine, is followed by Haydn’s Symphony no. 101: ‘The Clock’. Four works, all so different and yet so similar: ‘Disparate Pictures’ is a must-see musical journey.


Viktor Kaminsky – Te Deum

Haydn – Symphony no. 101 ‘The Clock’

Howard Skempton – Sirens

Brahms – Symphony no. 2
