The world premiere of John McCabe's 'Joybox' opens a concert of music inspired by or written for dance, from the Bohemian stamp and whirl of Beethoven's Seventh Symphony to the slow-burn crescendo of Ravel's 'Boléro'. Mezzo-soprano Clara Mouriz and the Compañía Antonio Marquéz join conductor Juanjo Mena and the BBC Philharmonic in Falla's colourful Ballets Russes commission 'The Three-Cornered Hat', a tale of intrigue and jealousy shot through with the spirit of Spanish folk dances.
