Explorations: The Sound Of Nonesuch Records: Explorations Weekend: The Sound Of Nonesuch Records Session Five: The BBC Concert Orchestra, Andre de Ridder, Jessica Rivera, Jonny Greenwood

Programme to include:

Steve Reich Electric Counterpoint
Jonny Greenwood There Will Be Blood suite
Henryk Górecki Symphony No. 3

Radiohead guitarist and former BBC Concert Orchestra composer-in-residence, Jonny Greenwood performs Reich’s legendary piece for electric guitar and tape, Electric Counterpoint – and plays the early electronic instrument ondes martenot with the orchestra on his own score from Oscar-winning film There Will Be Blood.

Górecki’s Symphony No. 3, also known as Symphony of Sorrowful Songs, is recognised as one of the most affecting and spellbinding works of the late 20th century. Inspired by stories of children separated from their families during World War II, the piece premiered in 1977 and – since its release by Nonesuch in 1992 – it has become one of the biggest classical music sellers of all time.
