Tippett's 'A Child of our Time' with Dean, Campbell, Choo and Andrews from Adelaide
Tippett's 'A Child of Our Time' is a secular oratorio with a libretto by the composer. The work was inspired by events that affected Tippett profoundly: the assassination in 1938 of a German diplomat by a young Jewish refugee, and the Nazi government's reaction in the form of a violent pogrom against its Jewish population: Kristallnacht.
Performers: Jessica Dean, soprano, Elizabeth Campbell, alto, Henry Choo, tenor, Pelham Andrews, bass.
Adelaide Festival Chorus. Adelaide Symphony Orchestra. Conductor: Brett Weymark.
