Britten Sinfonia/Britten Sinfonia Voices/New London Chamber Choir - John Tavener: "Flood of Beauty", Barbican Centre, London

David Lee
Author

'The East is a career', states Mr Coningsby somewhat laconically to Lord Henry Sydney in Benjamin Disraeli's 1847 novel Tancred. This line was (perhaps more famously) employed as an epigram by Edward Said in his Orientalism, which made a prescient and penetrating historical critique of the West's portrayal of Asian and Middle Eastern cultures as exotic 'others'.
