‘Heaven is Shy of Earth’ revival

‘Heaven is Shy of Earth’ revival
Julian Anderson’s Heaven is Shy of Earth for mezzo-soprano, SATB choir and orchestra, based on poetry by Emily Dickinson was a huge success at its 2006 premiere, with the Sunday Times describing it as ‘a powerful, beautiful and curious work’ and the Guardian praising its ‘shimmering soundworld’.

Don’t miss this chance to hear the world premiere of the completed version (now including a Gloria) alongside ideal companion pieces, Copland’s setting of Dickinson’s poetry and Sean Shepperd’s Wanderlust, a thrilling and exciting showpiece for orchestra. Oliver Knussen conducts Susan Bickley and the BBC Symphony Orchestra at the Barbican on 26 November 2010.
