Earthy, pagan dances meet the Music of the Spheres in this concert of 20th- and 21st-century orchestral works.

Stravinsky’s infamous ballet score The Rite of Spring pulses with rhythmic energy and urgency, while Icelandic composer Anna Thorvaldsdottir’s luminous and intricately textured Metacosmos travels deep into space. At the centre of the programme is Britten’s elegiac Violin Concerto, written on the cusp of the Second World War.

Violinist James Ehnes joins Edward Gardner and musicians from both London’s Royal Academy of Music and New York’s Juilliard School.
