Star South African soprano Pumeza Matshikiza is the soloist in her compatriot Kevin Volansís new choral piece to mark the BBC Singersí 90th birthday. This precedes two exuberant American classics, inspired by life in New England. In My Father knew Charles Ives John Adams re-imagines Ivesís multi-layered musical soundscape through his own memories of playing in marching bands. Itís a fitting prelude to Ivesís radical masterpiece, an intricately woven mesh of hymn tunes, popular songs and his own music, performed by multiple ensembles playing at different speeds and in different keys. The result, which Ives never heard, is a vast, dynamic theatre of sound whose influence continues to resonate through American music today.
