The A Scream and an Outrage weekend kicks off with two world premieres of specially-commissioned new pieces by Nico Muhly and Pulitzer Prize-winning composer David Lang.

Unrivalled interpreters of the contemporary repertoire, the BBC Singers will open the evening with Muhlyís latest composition, An Outrage; followed by Langís new percussion concerto titled man made, performed by the BBC Symphony Orchestra with Brooklyn-based innovators So Percussion.

The second half will feature the European premiere concert performance of Italian-American composer Paola Prestiniís new multimedia cantata, Oceanic Verses - in a new version for the Barbican stage.
