"During a 1989 match between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest football clubs at the Hillsborough Stadium in Sheffield, England, 96 people were crushed to death and 766 were injured when police allowed too many people to enter the stadium. Now referred to as the Hillsborough Disaster, it remains the worst stadium-related disaster in British history. Michael Nyman's Symphony No.11 was written as a memorial to the victims. The work is heard here in an emotionally charged performance by Liverpool-born mezzo-soprano Kathryn Rudge, accompanied by the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra led by Josep Vicent."
