A programme of personal passions curated by George Benjamin in collaboration with Oliver Knussen.

Night music and mysterious voices infuse both Debussy's evocative Nocturnes and George Benjamin's new work, Dream of the Song, written for and performed by star countertenor Iestyn Davies. Expect thrilling dynamism and crystalline detail from Oliver Knussen's performance of Stravinsky's Symphony in Three Movements, the composer's turbulent, chromatic war-time masterpiece.

Listen to our podcast below, with interviews from composer George Benjamin and counter-tenor Iestyn Davies.
