Ian McEwan and the BBC Symphony Orchestra

Ian McEwan leans on his hand, his centralised image is surrounded by BBC SO branding

In the latest of the BBC Symphony Orchestra’s collaborations with great writers, Ian McEwan joins the orchestra for an evening of words and music.

Ian McEwan is one of the most admired storytellers of our time – an author whose novels lay bare the passions and the contradictions of modern Britain, exploring universal truths about relationships, society and the infinite complexity of the human condition. In this very special event, the author of Atonement, Chesil Beach and Enduring Love joins the BBC Symphony Orchestra to read from his own works, with music curated around his readings, and a special guest appearance by jazz singer Emma Smith.

This performance will end at approximately 9.30pm

Please note that some of the readings in this concert include themes of an adult nature and strong language.

Produced by BBC Symphony Orchestra
