Simon Rattle conducts “Weltethos” by Jonathan Harvey and Hans Küng

“There will be no peace among the nations without peace among the religions.” – This basic principle of the Swiss theologian Hans Küng also forms the basis of his libretto to the choral work Weltethos. The piece is set to music by Jonathan Harvey – in the words of Simon Rattle, “probably the most spiritual of our British composers”. Weltethos was given its premiere in this concert under the direction of Simon Rattle.
