Justin Doyle is in Sweden for his first conducting engagement with the Swedish Radio Choir. The programme title is “Voices on Persecution and Flight” in which Justin and the Choir take the audience on a musical journey with stories about flight and homelessness. Human history has experienced recurring periods of conflict, oppression and alienation. The première performance of Lebanese composer Zad Moultaka’s “Mon ami le vent” based on a poem by Renée Vivien is one of many highlights of this powerful concert.
For more than 90 years the Swedish Radio Choir has been a steward of the Swedish a cappella tradition and the legendary choral sound created by Eric Ericson. It also presents enterprising and culturally diverse repertoire, from early music to contemporary works.
