Performers

Concert Information

Formerly known as the Laura Jurd Quartet, a new band awakens from the jaws of extinction. They are Dinosaur and they join the BBC Concert Orchestra tonight to give you an evening of fiery sonic experimentation and abstraction. BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist Laura Jurd has a passion for “making things up” and today's concert opens with her new work for orchestra & Dinosaur, combining influences from both classical and jazz music. We also hear a new work by Norwegian Tuba player Daniel Herskedal who defies the conventions of his instrument. He pushes the boundaries both technically and sonically creating spellbinding and mesmerising sounds.
