In this anniversary concert, the Hamburger Singakademie perform a work by Ralph Vaughan Williams – »A Sea Symphony« – for the very first time. The work’s leitmotiv is the sea in all its vastness, menace and beauty. It functions as a place of longing and as a metaphor for human life. The optimistic tone of the Walt Whitman poem the work is based on comes through beautifully – a maritime piece of music that could not be more fitting for the Hamburger Singakademie’s 200th anniversary.
