Sir William Walton’s spectacular biblical oratorio—tracing the liberation of the Hebrew slaves from captivity in Babylon and powered by a 200-voice mass choir—is the climax of a program conducted by TSO Conductor Laureate Sir Andrew Davis that includes the eloquent violin concerto that Alban Berg composed in tribute to a young woman who had died at eighteen.
