‘Savage splendour’ they called it at the premiere: exotic colours, irresistible rhythms, and the full majesty of choir, massive orchestra and brass bands make Belshazzar’s Feast one of the most thrilling pieces of music ever written. With Borodin’s spectacular Polovtsian Dances and an exciting new work by Australian composer Matthew Hindson, this concert is a true banquet for the senses.
