Karl Jenkins The Peacemakers 
                      Palladio
 
New London Sinfonia
David Gibson
 
The Peacemakers, composed in 2011, is a work extolling peace. Karl Jenkins dedicates this work to those who lost their lives during armed conflict. He takes inspiration from the utterances of world figures such as Mother Teresa, Nelson Mandela, the Dalai Lama and Gandhi all of whom chose to espouse peace in a violent world. 
 
In the year when we are marking the centenary of the end of The Great War it acknowledges all those who made the ultimate sacrifice.  
 
The concert will also feature Jenkins’ Palladio for string orchestra, a celebration of mathematical harmony in a baroque style.
