Messiaen Et exspecto resurrectionem mortuorum
Orff Carmina Burana

Messiaen’s fanfare for winds and massed percussion kicks off the Guildhall School of Music and Drama’s orchestral year – commissioned to commemorate the French dead of two World Wars, it’s an earth-shattering, physical work. No less arresting is Orff’s cantata which opens and closes with the famous ‘O Fortuna’. Japanese conductor Takuo Yuasa leads the Guildhall Symphony Orchestra, Chorus and Guildhall soloists in what promises to be an exhilarating start to the season.
