Respighi’s intimate evocations of Botticelli’s art, including the central ‘Adoration of the Magi’, preface Brett Dean’s festive Christmas cantata, The Annunciation, inspired by and commissioned for the 800th birthday of Bach’s own Thomanerchor (St Thomas’s Choir) in Leipzig, where it was premiered. The Annunciation depicts the journey of the three kings from darkness into light, in a four-part work for chamber orchestra and choir.  'Dean succeeds in achieving something that cannot be valued too highly: integrity' RBB Kulturradio.
In the second half Josep Pons presents Strauss’s effervescent theatre suite for Molière’s satire Le bourgeois gentilhomme, a showcase for the orchestra’s stylish versatility.
