The Program

For this intimate a cappella concert at the Church of St. Mary the Virgin, the Swedish Radio Choir, named one of the world’s leading choirs by Gramophone, creates immersive soundscapes with mesmerizing ethereal works by living composers. The program culminates in Schnittke’s Concerto for Choir, a moving 20th-century choral masterpiece.

“Star among stars was the fabulous Swedish Radio Choir which sang as close to perfection as one could wish for.”
