Holst The Mystic Trumpeter       19’
Beethoven Symphony No 9        65’

We look heavenward for our final performance, reviving David Matthews shimmering short cantata Stars for its first performance in almost half a century. Holst’s distinctive musical style begins to emerge in this luxuriant early work, with a list of influences that ranges from Wagner to Walt Whitman, and even encompasses Hindu philosophies. It ends with a serenely celestial expression of “Joy! Joy! All over joy!”, echoing Beethoven’s epic Choral Symphony, the powerful and uplifting climax of which is known the world over.
