Description

This performance commemorates the 25th anniversary of Germany’s reunification, which occurred Oct 3, 1990. With Russian hymns and La Marseillaise, Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture provides an account of the conflict between Napoleon and the Russian Army. On the brink of World War II, British composer Ralph Vaughan Williams drew texts from the Bible and three Walt Whitman poems for his deeply moving Dona Nobis Pacem, contrasting the destructive power of war with cries for reconciliation and peace.
