A superb line-up of soloists joins the London Symphony Chorus and LSO under the baton of Sir Simon Rattle in Schumann’s 1843 oratorio. Based on a story taken from Persian mythology, and reflecting the 19th-century craze for all things Oriental, it tells how the Peri, a legendary creature, was expelled from paradise and only redeems herself by offering the gift most dear to heaven – the tear from the cheek of a repentant sinner.
