MacMillan 3 interludes from The Sacrifice
Britten Sinfonia da requiem
Prokofiev Suite from Romeo and Juliet

Renowned Scottish composer and conductor James MacMillan directs the Guildhall Symphony Orchestra in a programme that includes orchestral excerpts from his opera The Sacrifice, a work premiered in 2007 by Welsh National Opera which was described as a ‘score of real brilliance’ by The Independent. Two twentieth-century classics are also on the programme: Prokofiev’s first suite from his enduringly popular ballet, and one of Britten’s finest orchestral works, written in the midst of, and as a response to, the horrors of World War II.

Preceded by a free performance at 6.30pm on the Barbican stage of chamber music by MacMillan, performed by Guildhall School musicians.
