New Zealand-born, Scottish-based composer Lyell Cresswell describes his new work, the title of which is Maori for 'labyrinth', as a concerto for orchestra in which the instruments and ideas are treated as tesserae in a mosaic, assembled to catch the light at different angles. This world premiere is followed by Grieg's Piano Concerto, perhaps the best-known and best-loved of them all, and Rachmaninov's final symphony.

Pre-concert talk, 6.00pm, Barbican Hall

Lyell Cresswell's Ara Kopikopiko was made possible by the award of the first Elgar Bursary, which is administered by the Royal Philharmonic Society.
