Forget what you thought you knew about orchestral concerts; this new and innovative series requests that you DO turn on your mobile phones and tablets.
The BBC Philharmonic, in partnership with the University of Salford, will be exploring new and rarely performed pieces – bringing audience immersion and new technology to the forefront.
The sessions will be featured in an enhanced live stream on the orchestra’s website, which enables the audience to explore the orchestra, receive synced information about the music and even view a live orchestral score.
Bring your devices and help us explore a new way of experiencing an orchestra.
Matthew Barley returns as soloist in Haydn’s sunny Cello Concerto, alongside a rare opportunity to experience the strange sound-worlds conjured up by three works from the 20th century European avant garde: Hungarian György Ligeti’s Ramifications (1968); Italian Salvatore Sciarrrino’s Autorittrato Nella Notte (‘Self portrait in the Night’, 1982) and local lad Sir Harrison Birwistle’s Carmen Arcadiae Mechanicum Perpetuum (‘perpetual song of mechanical paradise’, 1977).
