An evening dedicated to composers whose music ignores the divide between classical and non-classical.
Britten Sinfonia under André De Ridder performs music by Daníel Bjarnason, Bryce Dessner (The National) and Nico Muhly himself. In addition, there will be a sequence of pieces from the Heart And Breath series by Richard Reed Parry (Arcade Fire and Bell Orchestre) performed by Richard himself together with various guests including violist Nadia Sirota and Nico Muhly.
Plus, two new orchestral collaborations: a full set from Glen Hansard performing Nico Muhly's arrangements of his songs (including the Oscar-winning 'Once'), plus orchestral renditions of Villagers songs with frontman Conor J O'Brien and the Britten Sinfonia.
