ArtistsWorld Orchestra for Peace
In 2014 the World Orchestra for Peace returned with its conductor Valery Gergiev for its fourth appearance at the BBC Proms to play a special concert marking the centennial of the outbreak of World War 1.
The concert included Roxanna Panufnik’s Three Paths to Peace, commissioned by the orchestra, and Mahler’s Sixth Symphony, and it celebrated the 150th anniversary of Richard Strauss with the colourful, fairy-tale soundscapes of his operatic masterpiece Die Frau ohne Schatten.
The World Orchestra for Peace, founded in 1995 by Sir Georg Solti to reaffirm, in his words, “the unique strength of music as an ambassador for peace” is a classical super group consisting of leading players from the world’s finest orchestras.
In addition to the concert, the release includes a fascinating documentary with Sir Georg Solti and Valery Gergiev, marking the orchestra’s 20th anniversary.
