Concert Information

Forget what you thought you knew about orchestral concerts; this new and innovative series requests that you DO turn on your mobile phones and tablets.

The BBC Philharmonic, in partnership with the University of Salford, will be exploring new and rarely performed pieces – bringing audience immersion and new technology to the forefront.
Bring your devices and help us explore a new way of experiencing an orchestra.

This evening:

Matthew Barley returns as soloist in Haydn’s sunny Cello Concerto, alongside a rare opportunity to experience the strange sound-worlds conjured up by three works from the 20th century European avant garde: Hungarian György Ligeti’s Ramifications (1968); Italian Salvatore Sciarrrino’s Autorittrato Nella Notte (‘Self portrait in the Night’, 1982) and local lad Sir Harrison Birtwistle’s Carmen Arcadiae Mechanicae Perpetuum (‘perpetual song of mechanical paradise’, 1977).

At the interval, join our host Elizabeth Alker (BBC Radio 6 Music and Radio 3) for an interval discussion, before some of the repertoire will be repeated - inviting you to listen again with fresh ears.
