Sofi Jeannin conducts Tchaikovsky and Stravinsky

Singers at Six

BBC Singers

A concert of sacred choral works by Tchaikovsky and Stravinsky, explores music both for the Russian Orthodox and Christian traditions.

The BBC Singers and Chief Conductor Sofi Jeannin present a concert of Russian choral music, focusing on works by Tchaikovsky and Stravinsky. 60 years ago, Stravinsky completed the missing voice parts to Gesualdo’s Tres sacrae cantiones. The result is a fascinating fusion of the work of both composers, and is paired with three movements from Gesualdo’s Sacrarum cantionum alongside simple warmth of Tchaikovsky’s anthems for the Russian Orthodox Church.
