London Philharmonic Orchestra

One hundred years after WW1’s guns fell silent, we hear four composers’ surveys of a world in turmoil: and they might not be what you expect. Debussy broods on sacrifice, while Janáček stares boldly into the flames of a vision that’s both apocalyptic and transcendent. And then, as the shockwaves grow calmer, Stravinsky contemplates mortality with open eyes and piercing intelligence – while Finland’s Magnus Lindberg contributes something completely new, at a moment when all of Europe pauses to remember. Vladimir Jurowski conducts a concert that throws a very personal light on a dark century.

*Triumph to Exist is co-commissioned by the London Philharmonic Orchestra and 14-18 NOW: WW1 Centenary Art Commissions (with support from the National Lottery through Arts Council England and the Heritage Lottery Fund, and from the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport), the Gulbenkian Orchestra and the Orchestra National de Lille.
