New music for chorus and orchestra: Carl Rütti
16th November 2009
Born in Switzerland in 1949, Rütti studied at the Zürich Conservatoire and privately in London. His music blends the English choral tradition with other genres including jazz and the blues in rich colourful textures, and has been performed all over the world. His compositions also include the carol I wonder as I wander, which has been performed several times in recent years as part of King’s College Cambridge’s Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols.
Scored for soprano and bass soloists with double choir, the Requiem is a practical work sharing its orchestration with Faure’s Requiem – strings, harp and organ – but it can also be performed with organ alone. Performing materials are available on hire.
