Everybody dance! Debussy evokes ancient Greece, Stravinsky breaks open a paintbox of orchestral colours, and the brilliant young sax star Jess Gillam plays showpieces with a Latin flavour. Then it’s time to salsa, with Milhaud’s uproarious Le boeuf sur le toit.
Our pre-concert talk will be a performance. Come and listen to new works by the three finalists in our Young Composers’ Competition, and cast your vote along with the jury. Our NYNA festival continues on Saturday 19 January – stay tuned for more information.
