Life and death collide in a concert that explores what lies beyond the limits of human existence.

In his passionate Sixth Symphony, which the composer described as 'the best thing I ever composed or shall compose', Tchaikovsky reimagined what the symphony could be, daring to face death with uncertainty.

The BBC Philharmonic's Composer in Association and a former BBC Young Musician winner and BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist, Mark Simpson, also looks to the afterlife in his critically acclaimed oratorio The Immortal. Inspired by Victorian seances, he conjures up eerie visions of a world beyond.
