with Wynton Marsalis Kurt Masur conductor
Commissioned by Kurt Masur and the New York Philharmonic Orchestra in 1999, All Rise is an extraordinary, epic work on the scale of Marsalis's 1997 Pulizer Prize-winning oratorio Blood on the Fields. Unanimously hailed as a masterpiece by the critics, the work is a slice from the rock-face of musical culture; mirroring the career of Wynton Marsalis, an eclectic musician in every sense - scored for a symphony orchestra, a jazz orchestra, a chorus and a gospel choir. Hugely influenced by jazz and the blues, All Rise encomplasses a plethora of musical styles from the fugue to the fiddler's reel; from the didgeridoo to ancient Greece; and from Eastern scales to 'plain old down-home ditties'. In the words of Marsalis himself, 'I don't try to combine many different styles in a 'world music' type of melange, I only try to hear that they are the same.'
In the first performances of All Rise in the UK, Kurt Masur will lead Wynton Marsalis, the London Philharmonic Orchestra, the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra and the London Adventist Chorale in performances in Birmingham, Cardiff, London, Manchester and Glasgow in what will be one of the highlights of the UK's musical year.
