Concert Information

The Bang on a Can All-Stars join the BBC Concert Orchestra and Principal Conductor Bramwell Tovey for the UK premiere of Flower Power, a new work from Pulitzer prize-winning American composer Julia Wolfe.

In her new work, Wolfe draws on the energy generated by a radical revolutionary moment - the late 1960s - a time when experimental ideas and questions permeated all parts of the political, social and artistic landscapes. This shift brought new spiritual and intellectual explorations, a breakdown of social norms, psychedelic visions, artistic explosion, and a greater and more open expression of love and peace.

The programme also includes English and American minimalism in orchestral form by Steve Martland, John Adams and Philip Glass.
