Prom 28
  Performance Date:     Seat Amount:    
Hear some of the UK's finest young musical talent, directed by composer and conductor Thomas Ades, in a bold programme of works that push the orchestra to its technical and sonic limits.

Ades's own Polaris, subtitled 'A Voyage for Orchestra', takes inspiration from the North Star, conjuring a vast interstellar landscape that unfolds from a simple piano theme into a massive sonic spiral.

Francisco Coll's Mural, tonight receiving its London premiere, is another richly textured, large-scale work - a 'grotesque symphony, in which Dionysus meets Apollo'.

The concert's climax is Stravinsky's ballet score The Rite of Spring, whose frenzied rhythms and provocative harmonies prompted a legendary riot at its Paris premiere.
