Tonight’s first half contrasts Gérard Grisey’s classic Dérives, a striking exploration of the interiors of sounds, with Mahler’s tender Rückert-Lieder.

Mozart’s unfinished Mass in C minor is a mix of the chamber and the operatic, the dancing and the devotional – a work ripe for the resonance of the Royal Albert Hall.
