Georg Friedrich Händel Suite from Music for the Royal Fireworks
Michael Waldenby Vinterorgel (Winter Organ, Ballad for choir and orchestra)
Francis Poulenc Concerto for organ, strings and timpani
Ralph Vaughan Williams Five Mystical Songs

Come celebrate the new year with us! We offer you some real musical fireworks. Listen to a selection from Georg Friedrich Handel’s Music for the Royal Fireworks, commissioned by King George II for an outdoor display of fireworks in April 1749. Francis Poulenc’s famous Concerto for organ, strings and timpani has gained its place as a 20th century classic with an unusual mix of exuberance, melancholic beauty and a sense of foreboding, which is said to reflect the changing moods in Europe between the two World Wars.

The year 2022 will se the 150th anniversary of British composer Ralph Vaughan Williams, here represented with his intensely expressive Five Mystical Songs, set to texts of the beloved English poet George Herbert. The songs explore the inner landscape of the human soul before God, ranging from the most intimate to expressions of overflowing joy.
