Schoenberg’s Accompaniment to a Film Scene opens the programme, its nervous energy inspired by the words ‘threatening, danger, fear, catastrophe’.
Bartók and Stravinsky’s music finds its energy in darting rhythmic patterns, throwing light and shade across the orchestra.
Eötvös’ Multiversum, for organ, Hammond organ and orchestra explores the nature of the universe and what lies beyond.
Multiversum is a co-commission by Philharmonia Orchestra and Southbank Centre.
