World Premiere of Jessica Curry's Echo in London

Nov. 01, 2021

A commission from Crouch End Festival Chorus, Jessica Curry's latest work is Echo, a 17-minute setting for choir and orchestra of a poem by Christina Rossetti. It was premiered at Alexandra Palace Theatre in London on October 24, with the choir conducted by its Music Director, David Temple. The program was completed by Mozart's Requiem and Brahms's Schicksalslied. The composer writes:

'Echo' is a poem that I’d had in the back of my consciousness for some time, so when Crouch End Festival Chorus got in touch to say that they’d like me to write a piece for them a plan started to form. The poem has one of the most beautiful, extraordinarily redolent opening lines: “Come to me in the silence of a dream” – it’s so immediately evocative, so-otherworldly and so ripe for setting to music. It feels like a poem that straddles two worlds – where the living and the dead strive to meet and touch – and Rossetti implores her lost one to “Come back to me in dreams.”
