Philip Lancaster's new War Passion for chamber choir and ensemble is a telling of the Passion story interspersed with words by nine First World War poets, offering both a commentary on the Passion and a parallel narrative recounting the experience and sacrifice of that war. It is paired with the searing Requiem by Herbert Howells, inspired by the death from polio of the composer's nine-year-old son Michael.

François Leleux oboe
Aurora Orchestra
Nicholas Collon conductor
Tom Service presenter

It’s difficult to imagine how Mozart could have followed his final symphony, the ‘Jupiter’ – a work of such scale, majesty and intensity. Tom Service and Nicholas Collon unpick Mozart’s continuous stream of joy and invention, allowing us to get under the skin of this great work, which the Aurora Orchestra plays from memory.

Before it, one of the world’s leading oboists, François Leleux, plays Strauss’s twisting, singing Oboe Concerto – itself preceded by Wolfgang Rihm’s Hunted Form, whose animal energy suggests a pursuit more physical than a search merely for musical structure.


Wolfgang Rihm : Gejagte Form
Richard Strauss : Oboe Concerto in D major

National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain
Edward Gardner conductor

Open your ears to the music of the universe as the world’s greatest orchestra of teenagers embarks on a voyage back through a century of space discovery.

The journey begins with Gravitational Waves by German composer Iris ter Schiphorst. This is music for the here and now, for the beginning of a new era in astronomy. Fasten your seat belts and prepare for a thrilling ride to new musical frontiers as the original sound of the gravitational wave echoes through the orchestra and individual players gradually become one united force.

Next are two of classical music’s must-hear pieces: Strauss’sAlso Sprach Zarathustra, with its glorious, spine-tingling opening fanfare made famous by Stanley Kubrik’s film 2001: A Space Odyssey, and Holst’sThe Planets completed by Colin Matthews’ Pluto:The Renewer. This music never fails to stir the emotions with its huge melodies and luscious harmonies and in the hands of these young musicians, it will fizz with an explosive, barely containable energy.

The countdown is on - join us for a fearless, totally teenage cosmic adventure.


Richard Strauss : Also Sprach Zarathustra
Gustav Holst : The Planets
Iris ter Schiphorst : Gravitational Waves

Thunderstorm
English National Opera
London Coliseum

Shanghai Opera

Thunderstorm is an award-winning modern opera about family, society and corruption in Old Shanghai. Zhou Puyuan is the head of a wealthy, successful and seemingly happy Shanghai household. But a storm is gathering… for behind this veneer of respectability lies a web of intrigue, and a dark family secret. As corruption is exposed and his family disintegrates, Zhou is confronted with a changing society and the emergence of a new China.

Based on the acclaimed play by Cao Yu, and set to music by legendary composer Mo Fan, this lavish production of Thunderstorm is a beautiful evocation of the atmosphere of Old Shanghai and not to be missed.
