Celebrating Centenaries with the Goethe Choir

Saturday, 6 April 2024, 7.30pm

The Goethe Choir is thrilled to announce a spectacular concert commemorating the centenaries of three prolific composers: C. V. Stanford (1852–1924), Bedřich Smetana (1824–1884), and Anton Bruckner (1824–1896).

Charles Villiers Stanford, the Irish composer and conductor, left an indelible mark on British and Irish music during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Bedřich Smetana, the Czech composer and father of Czech music, is celebrated for his nationalistic compositions, particularly the symphonic poem "Má Vlast." Anton Bruckner, the Austrian symphonist, created monumental and intricate symphonies that have become timeless masterpieces.

The Goethe Choir, directed by John Dexter and joined by accomplished soloists, will present a concert of works by these renowned composers in the stunning setting of Saint Patrick's Cathedral with support from David Leigh (organ) and the Hartigans Brass Ensemble. The programme includes Te Deum and Jubilate in C, Beati quorum via and excerpts of From Bible Songs by Stanford, Vltava - The Moldau (version for organ) by Smetana and Te Deum in C major by Bruckner.

Join us there for an unforgettable experience on 6 April at 7.30pm as we celebrate the musical milestones of Stanford, Smetana, and Bruckner.
