Nine-time ASCAP award-winning orchestra, the New England Philharmonic, under the direction of Richard Pittman, continues their 40th anniversary celebration with Michael Tippett’s masterpiece, “A Child of Our Time,” at Boston University’s Tsai Auditorium.
More than 75 years after its composition, “A Child of Our Time” is unfortunately all too relevant to audiences of our time. Though rooted in the ideas and politics of the era of the World Wars and the rise of Nazi Germany, the oratorio was written as a broader meditation on man’s inhumanity to man. It is a call for unity; the frustration at its core reflects that of its composer, who was appalled by Nazi atrocities yet also an uncompromising pacifist who was jailed for his beliefs.
“A Child of Our Time” is a beautiful and moving work protesting oppression around the world.
