Concert Information

Inspired by his Bolton childhood but evoking other worlds entirely, Simon Holt’s kinetic percussion concerto positively fizzes with energy. A thrilling, elemental explosion of sound, this is contemporary music at its most vital and fresh. a table of noises was written for dynamic British percussionist Colin Currie, who’ll perform it with the orchestra – before conductor John Storgårds directs Mahler’s very different yet equally mesmerising Seventh Symphony, the mighty ‘Song of the Night’.
