An all-British season launch, featuring two major figures who composed responses to the First World War.

Holst's much-loved The Planets (premiered in 1918) and Vaughan Williams's choral masterpiece Toward the Unknown Region contrast with a new work by Anna Meredith and 59 Productions.

Five Telegrams draws on communications sent by young soldiers in 1918 and features specially produced digital projections, creating a unique spectacle.
