This promises to be a night of the sublime and the numinous, in which Messiaen’s visionary epic is prefaced with Mozart’s inimitable double concerto for violin and viola, featuring two of Europe’s leading young string players. The BBC Symphony Orchestra will be joined by students from the Royal Academy of Music for the performance of Messaien’s Éclairs sur l’Au-delà... or ‘Illuminations on the Beyond’. Scored for vast orchestral forces, this was Messaien's final completed work. Months before his death he spoke of its inspiration - ‘I imagined myself in front of a curtain, in darkness, apprehensive about what lay beyond: Resurrection, Eternity, the other life.’
