The annual atmospheric a cappella performance by the Groot Omroepkoor in Utrecht's Jacobi Church is again an event to look forward to. Conducted by its first guest conductor Peter Dijkstra, the choir and organist Leo van Doeselaar will perform religious music from the Romantic period to the 21st century. A part of the rarely performed oratorio Christus by Franz Liszt can be heard. This will be followed by the world premiere of a new work for the Groot Omroepkoor, written by the Ukrainian-Dutch composer Maxim Shalygin (1985), who studied in The Hague with Cornelis de Bondt and Diderik Wagenaar and stayed in the Netherlands. The three moving motets by Anton Bruckner form a good combination with two spiritual songs by Wolfram Buchenberg, a contemporary composer of choral music from Munich. Antonín Dvořák's Mass in D concludes the programme.
Tickets will be on sale from 1 May.
