Gandhi, Mandela, Mother Teresa, Dr King and Anne Frank – all in one Carnegie premieremain
It’s Karl Jenkins’s The Peacemakers, coming up on January 16.
I once described Jenkins’ music as disposable – in the very sense, in the way that much of what Haydn and Mozart turned out was never intended to be heard more than once or twice. Karl seems to have got around that drawback by seeding a load of Google-search named into his work to ensure that it gets repeated widely and often.
Good luck to him.
