Night music and mysterious voices infuse both Debussy's evocative Nocturnes and George Benjamin's new work for star counter tenor Iestyn Davies, Dream of the Song. Expect thrilling dynamism and crystalline detail from Oliver Knussen's performance of Stravinsky's Symphony in Three Movements, the composer's turbulent, chromatic war-time masterpiece.
