A retrospective listen to the best British compositions of the 1990sAnderson’s Stations of the Sun is on the programme, with its kaleidoscopic soundscapes and pent up energy. Then Evelyn Glennie performs MacMillan’s concerto Veni, Veni, Emmanuel, as the percussionist it was originally written for. The fine line between looming space and tight claustrophobia is given into in Thomas Adès' often terrifying piece Asyla. A celebration of composers who are our near contemporaries.
Seating allocated on arrival. Please note, there will be no interval during this performance. Free pre-concert event discussing tonight's programme between 6pm-6:45pm, in the Royal Festival Hall.
