Old Bones – Aurora Orchestra with Iestin Davies

November 23, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm


Devised in collaboration with composer Nico Muhly and countertenor Iestyn DaviesAurora Orchestra’s programme stops the clocks and delves into ancient notions of time, as explored by Dowland, Debussy, Satie and Adès. Muhly’s distinctive musical voice is threaded throughout, from his haunting account of the discovery of Richard III’s Old Bones to the virtuosic and uplifting quintet Motion.

Adès’ portrayal of the ‘25th hour’, where time at last seeps beyond the measure of the clock face at the end of his extraordinary Four Quarters, completes a transcendental programme.

Pre-Concert Talk: Nico Muhly in conversation with Tom Service
