In 2016, Detlev Glanert chose to mark five centuries since the death of his countryman, the painter Hieronymous Bosch, with a grand and extraordinary new work. Glanert’s Requiem for Hieronymus Bosch, unveiled that year in Amsterdam, combines the Latin texts of the Requiem Mass with selections from the medieval manuscript collection Carmina Burana. The result, for four soloists, two choirs, organ and orchestra, is an ‘inward spectacle’ equivalent in intensity to one of Bach’s passions but full of Glanert’s radioactive excitability and irreverence.

Semyon Bychkov leads the Orchestra, soloists and BBC Singers and Symphony Chorus in the UK premiere of this major new work.

Before the full forces of the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Chorus, the BBC Singers, with conductor Andrew Griffiths, give an a cappella performance of music which opens a door into the soundworld of Hieronymous Bosch.
