John Adams Harmonium
Gerhard The Plague

Crouch End Festival Chorus
London Orchestra da Camera
David Temple
conductor
Paul McGann narrator

These works by Roberto Gerhard and John Adams represent two of the most dynamic and extraordinary choral works of the 20th Century. The Plague is based on Albert Camus's La Peste which tells of the plague's visit to a North African town in the 1940's. It is an allegory of the infiltration of fascism. (The narrator role (the town's doctor) is taken by one of the UK's leading actors.) Harmonium is an early work by John Adams, considered by many to be the world's greatest living composer. The work is full of rhythmical energy and eroticism.
