KURSK: An Oratorio Requiem
by David Chisholm and Anzhelina Polonskaya
Sweeping in scope, devastating in tone and unwavering in its artistic vision, this collaboration between composer David Chisholm and poet Anzhelina Polonskaya is a moving elegy to the lives lost in the tragic sinking of the Kursk submarine.
Kursk was premiered by Melbourne's Arcko Symphonic Project, featuring trumpet virtuoso Tristram Williams, celebrated young soprano Jessica Aszodi and 2010 RMP Aria Award winning bass-baritone Christopher Richardson, under the exceptional direction of New York conductor Eric Dudley.
