Errollyn Wallen Mighty River
Dvořák Symphony No9 From the New World
James Lowe Conductor
Karen Cargill Mezzo-soprano
Errollyn Wallen’s Mighty River is dedicated to her great-great-great-great-great-great-grandmother, who may well have been a slave. ‘It is an innate human instinct to be free,’ she says, ‘just as it is a law of nature that the river should rush headlong to the sea.’ This gripping orchestral work from one of Britain’s most original living composers makes an unforgettable impact. Accompanied by Dvořák’s stunning New World Symphony and Wagner’s sensuous love songs performed by Scottish mezzo-soprano Karen Cargill.
