Aurora Orchestra

For the first in its 2013 New Moves series, Aurora collaborates with tenor Allan Clayton to produce a unique and haunting theatrical concert built around Britten’s Nocturne. The programme charts a course through the darkness of a troubled night, with other repertoire including Vivaldi’s La Notte (‘The Night’) and James MacMillan’s Deep but Dazzling Darkness with solo violinist Thomas Gould, commissioned for the opening of LSO St Luke's in 2003.

Antonio Vivaldi : Flute Concerto in G minor Op 10 No 2, La Notte ('The Night')
James MacMillan : A Deep but Dazzling Darkness
Gyorgy Ligeti : Poème Symphonique for 100 metronomes
Benjamin Britten : Nocturne
Ivor Gurney : Sleep
