Holstís The Planets is quite simply one of the most thrilling orchestral showpieces of the twentieth century; a fantastic musical voyage to the very
edge of infinity and beyond. Peter Oundjian begins the Season in spectacular style, but first thereís a centenary tribute to Benjamin Britten, and piano legend Jean-Yves Thibaudet makes history with the UK premiere of a new concerto by world-renowned Scottish composer, James MacMillan. Itís the start of an incredible journey: be there!

Benjamin Britten : Simple Symphony
