A Scream And An Outrage: Session One: BBC Symphony Orchestra, The BBC Singers, So Percussion
The A Scream and an Outrage weekend kicks off with two world premieres of specially-commissioned new pieces by Nico Muhly and Pulitzer Prize-winning composer David Lang.
Unrivalled interpreters of the contemporary repertoire, the BBC Singers will open the evening with Muhly’s latest composition, Outrage; followed by Lang’s new percussion concerto titled man made, performed by the BBC Symphony Orchestra with Brooklyn-based innovators So Percussion.
The second half will feature the European premiere concert performance of Italian-American composer Paola Prestini’s new multimedia opera, Oceanic Verses - in a new version for the Barbican stage.
