Michael Nyman's Symphony No.11: Hillsborough Memorial pays tribute to the 96 Liverpool football fans who lost their lives in 1989 and for whom Justice has only recently been served.
Nyman sets the names of the 96 victims to music in the opening movement, ‘The Singing of the Names’, powerfully performed by Liverpool born mezzo-soprano Kathyrn Rudge. The names of the 96 will be included within the booklet notes, along with Michael’s own thoughts on the events leading up to the writing of the music.
Josep Vicent conducts the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra in this emotionally charged recording.
“unspoken, unplayed, unsung, beneath the surface of this Symphony is the history of family pain and my personal anger with the corruption of the Thatcher government and her duplicitous police force.” - Michael Nyman (2014)
World Premiere Recording.
Commissioned by the Liverpool Biennial 2014.
World Premiere Performance, July 5th 2014 at Liverpool Cathedral.
