The opening concert of the New Creations Festival showcases intriguing music by some of today’s most engaging composers: George Benjamin’s evocative setting for soprano of the poem The Snowman by Wallace Stevens; a new Violin Concerto by Vivian Fung that the TSO commissioned for Concertmaster Jonathan Crow; and a dynamic work by Japanese composer Dai Fujikura that was inspired by the celebrated music education programme, El Sistema.
Join us for a Pre-concert Performance, Intermission Chat, and Post-concert Party in the Lobby at this performance.
