Krzysztof Penderecki conducts his Symphony No. 7, The Seven Gates of Jerusalem Prague Spring International Music Festival 2017

About

One of the greatest composers of the latter half of the twentieth century, Krzysztof Penderecki (1933 – 2020) brought the 2017 Prague Spring festival to a close with his monumental Symphony No. 7, Seven Gates of Jerusalem, for soloists, choir, and orchestra. Written to commemorate the third millennium of the city of Jerusalem in 1996, the work incorporates excerpts from the Psalms and the Old Testament and was originally composed as an oratorio before being reconceptualized as a symphony.
