William Walton’s sumptuous Belshazzar’s Feast was originally commissioned in1929 by the BBC who asked for a “small-scale choral work” which would be suitable for a radio broadcast. Walton didn’t take to heart the “small-scale” part of the commission and produced a work that required orchestral and choral forces far too large to be accommodated in the original studio venue. At a length of 35 minutes, Belshazzar’s Feast is easily one of the most exciting choral and orchestral masterworks of the early 20th century!

The Livestream will be available until November 18, 2023.
