It’s no secret that James MacMillan’s profound religious belief drives his creativity, but music this powerful conveys a universal message, and the title of his new symphony, ‘Le grand Inconnu’, suggests many possible interpretations.
Symphony no.5 ‘Le grand Inconnu’ was commissioned by the Genesis Foundation for Harry Christophers and The Sixteen.
‘By calling his new Symphony ‘Le grand Inconnu’ James has given himself that freedom to explore the mystery of the subject matter and, with repeated listening, we, the listener, discover more and more within the music… From the barely audible breathing at the start of the symphony to the first forte that is so sudden and ecstatic that it produces one of those heart-pounding moments. Everything is drawn together by James into a cornucopia of sheer virtuosity and brilliance.’ – Harry Christophers
‘I regard Harry Christophers’ choir as one of the great choirs of the world and their standards of vocal brilliance and blend are unsurpassed.’ – James MacMillan
