The Festival’s concert programme concludes as it began: with grand, celebratory British choral music performed by the Royal Scottish National Orchestra and Edinburgh Festival Chorus. Walton’s much-loved Belshazzar’s Feast is one of the composer’s most acclaimed pieces, telling of the Jews’ miraculous regaining of their freedom following the fall of the Babylonian King Belshazzar. Welsh-born baritone Neal Davies, a regular visitor to the Festival, takes the demanding solo part in a thrilling work full of rich orchestration and fiery climaxes. American conductor David Robertson precedes Walton’s opulent oratorio with music by two of his pioneering compatriots - Ives and Feldman. Sponsored by Lumison.
