Ever since he was a child, Sir George Benjamin wanted to be a composer. At only twenty years of age, his piece ‘Ringed by the Flat Horizon’ was played at the BBC Proms. Fourty years on and the MCO, under George’s baton, will present the world premiere of ‘Concerto for Orchestra’ at the same event.
Tune in as host Yannick Dondelinger explores the uniqueness of this new work – composed for and dedicated to the MCO – and delves into the utterly fascinating mind of one of classical music’s most beloved and inspiring creators.
