Tippett A Child of Our Time

Tippett’s A Child of Our Time, was inspired by the assassination in 1938 of a German diplomat by a young Jewish refugee, and the Nazi government's violent reaction against its Jewish population, called ‘Kristallnacht’. 

The oratorio, which has five African-American spirituals at its heart was composed at the start of WWII and reflects the experiences of oppressed people, carrying a strongly pacifist message of ultimate understanding and reconciliation. 

Beethoven’s Concerto for Violin, Cello and Piano in C major, popularly known as the Triple Concerto, is performed by young artists Trio Isimsiz. This special concert is performed by the Philharmonia Orchestra alongside Brighton Festival Chorus and a cast of world-class soloists and promises a deeply emotional journey and particularly poignant end to our 2019 Festival programme.
