Leoš Janáček – The Eternal Gospel
It’s Ludovic Morlot’s final appearance as music director, and he is throwing a party for the ages. In Debussy’s gorgeous Nocturnes, clouds drift off, festivals flash and fade away, and the shimmering sea beckons with the seductive call of the Sirens. For Janáček, the king of Czech opera, composing the choral work The Eternal Gospel offered an outlet for timeless themes of love and peace that transcend any language or faith. Bon voyage, Ludo, and thanks for the inspiration you have brought to us all.
