The Bach Choir: Alexander Nevsky at Southbank Centre


Two modern day masterpieces: Prokofiev's Alexander Nevsky and Bernstein's Chichester Psalms. Alexander Nevsky, which has been described as 'the greatest movie score ever written', incorporates folk melodies, the sorrow of the battlefield and a battle which builds to a spectacular climax. Alongside in this his centenary year, we have Leonard Bernstein's musical depiction of peace and unity using a magical blend of the Christian choral tradition and Hebrew verse.
