National Philharmonic and The Washington Chorus reunite under the baton of TWC Artistic Director Eugene Rogers for a program highlighting the brilliant choral works of Lili Boulanger, Igor Stravinsky, and Ludwig van Beethoven. The intricate harmonies, expressive melodies, and expansive orchestration of Boulanger’s Psalm 24 paint a picture of the composer’s faith and immense talent. While Symphony of Psalms is a profound work that blends religious texts into Stravinsky’s unique musical vision, using dissonant harmonies and shifting meters to create a sense of drama and tension.
The Mass in C Major—known as the Missa in C—bridges Beethoven’s classical early works and his more experimental compositions, showcasing his masterful understanding of the power of orchestra and chorale. The Missa in C is unique in its clarity and simplicity, conveying moving spiritual themes in a work that remains a beloved staple of the choral repertoire to this day.
Lili Boulanger, Psalm 24 (La Terre appartient à l'Eternel; The Earth is the Lord's)
Igor Stravinsky, Symphony of Psalms (Symphonie de psaumes)
Ludvig van Beethoven, Mass, op.86, C major
