'The Melos Sinfonia marks the 350th anniversary of John Milton’s poem Paradise Lost with music inspired by the epic.

Milton's Paradise Lost – dictated by the blind poet to assistants over a period of six years – sets out to ‘justify the ways of God to Man’. The Melos Sinfonia will mark the epic’s 350th anniversary with three works inspired by it: Haydn's Creation, and two new commissions. Presented alongside extracts from the poem, this will be a memorable tribute to one of the greatest texts in the English language.

The Melos Sinfonia is an energetic orchestra based in London which, through ambitious programming and enterprising projects, provides talented young musicians with invaluable experience and exposure. Players are drawn from the major conservatoires and universities across the UK, as well as from orchestras such as the European Union Youth Orchestra, Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester, Britten-Pears Orchestra and Southbank Sinfonia.
