Forget what you thought you knew about orchestral concerts; this new and innovative series request 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.
Join us to celebrate the University’s 50th anniversary as we go back to the French Baroque for the last concert of this series. The orchestra performs Jean-Féry Rebel’s 1737 ballet score The Elements, and Maurice Ravel’s early 20th Century ballet-tribute to his great Baroque predecessor François Couperin. Alongside these are Thomas Adès’ contemporary orchestrations of Couperin, and late romantic composer Richard Strauss’ own 1941 arrangement of Couperin, his Divertimento.
At the interval, join host Elizabeth Alker (BBC Radio 6 Music and Radio 3) for an interval discussion.
