About Donald Runnicles conducts The Protecting Veil

John Tavener was one of the most inspired geniuses of the late 20th century.

Deeply connected to ancient traditions, he dedicated his life to expressing beauty and truth through music. In The Protecting Veil he created an exquisite universe, awe-inspiring and intensely beautiful. Full of delicate, weightless chords that float over the concert hall.

English cellist Matthew Barley is the ideal soloist for this deeply touching meditation for cello and orchestra, his recent recording of it praised as a 'performance of great tenderness and eloquence' by BBC Music Magazine.

Wagner’s ‘Good Friday Spell’ from Parsifal is the ideal way into this program. A bright and ecstatic celebration of life and the world, the triumphant sound of the brass is enchanting and delightful. After the contemplation of Tavener, Mendelssohn’s triumphant Fifth Symphony is the perfect way to send you back out into the world.

This is transformative music that touches the soul and lifts the spirits.
