1947: World Premieres from our Year of Independence – Sunday August 13, 2017 at 6:30 pm

The finale programme, along with the finals of the competition, will showcase what the world was listening to in our final year under the British Raj. The music from 1947 gives a vivid insight into the emerging ideologies of the time and provides a context of “independence” which each of the composers embody. Britten’s Canticle “My Beloved is Mine”, Henze’s Sonatina for Flute and Piano, Duruflé’s Requiem, Stravinsky’s Concerto for Strings and Ginastera’s Suite de Danzas Criollas are all from 1947 and we will be sure not to forget the jazz and pop genres that were gaining great momentum.
