Music of the Spheres 

Soar to cosmic heights of wonder and ponder the celestial sounds that have mesmerised philosophers since ancient times with Aurora Orchestra in its most visually striking Orchestral Theatre production.

For the Greek philosophers and their later admirers in the Renaissance, music was of profound importance, woven into the fabric of the cosmos as elemental sounds produced by the stars and planets themselves.

The enduring concept of the ‘music of the spheres’ provides the starting point for this orchestral adventure that roams from Mozart to Max Richter, with elements of design, lighting, projection and animation that place the orchestra inside these ancient visions of our solar system.

Aurora Orchestra 
Nicholas Collon conductor
Pekka Kuusisto violin
Kate Wicks production design
William Reynolds lighting design

Rimsky-Korsakov's Scheherazade

London Symphony Orchestra

Elim Chan conducts a programme to keep you on the edge of your seat. Tchaikovsky’s First Piano Concerto is filled with drama and intensity from the very first moment – from opening chords soaring up the length of the piano, to virtuosic flourishes and a galloping finale – and no match for Alice Sara Ott’s skill. It’s complemented by with Rimsky-Korsakov’s intricately descriptive music, inspired by the Orient and One Thousand and One Nights, an extravagant journey through faraway lands and fairy-tale adventures.

The world premiere of a new work by Liam Mattison – a young composer championed by the LSO – is the perfect match for this showcase, presenting exceptional artists who are the ones to watch.
