If you ask about the greatest rarities in this year's programme, Fauré's "Super flumina Babylonis" has a good chance of taking the top spot. Fauré composed the work for tenor solo, choir and orchestra as an 18-year-old – to Psalm No. 136, which also inspired Verdi's famous "Va, pensiero". Although Fauré worked as an organist for a long time and wrote numerous sacred works, he always emphasised that he was not a believer. He also composed his "Requiem" "for fun", he once said: as an alternative to the other masses for the dead that he so often had to accompany. No doubt: Poulenc's imaginative organ concert, in which our focus artist Iveta Apkalna can pull out all the stops of her skills and our Kuhn organ, would have pleased him.
