Love and Faith
Maestro Kristian Alexander unites the Kindred Spirits Orchestra in their concluding concert of 2017-2018. Ravel’s most celebrated work, Boléro, is a cleverly crafted rising orchestral crescendo through the use of brilliant ever-changing instrumental colours and texture. Intriguingly annotated “Herein is enshrined the soul of…..” makes Elgar’s Violin Concerto, a truly touching piece where “love and faith meet.” Taken from motives from his sinfully immoral opera, The Fiery Angel, Symphony No. 3 by Prokofiev unquestionably rouses our darkest emotions.
