BBC Concert Orchestra under Charles Hazlewood, with Allison Bell (sprechstimme), Melanie Pappenheim (mezzo-soprano) and pianist Danny Driver.

Arnold Schoenberg's 'Pierrot Lunaire' for soprano and ensemble, Op 21; Sir Peter Maxwell Davies's 'The Devils' concert suite for soprano, boys' choir and ensemble; Jocelyn Pook's 'Hearing Voices' (world premiere, BBC Radio 3 commission); and Muse's 'Hysteria (I want it now)' arr for ensemble.

The BBC Concert Orchestra delves into the depths of the human psyche playing with fear, anxiety, disturbance and madness. Jocelyn Pook's new work 'Hearing Voices', for example, is inspired by the diaries and notebooks of her great aunt describing life in an asylum.

(Suitable for audiences aged 16 and over, and is broadcast live on BBC Radio 3.)
