Benjamin at the Barbican – 18th March 2016



A programme of personal passions curated by George Benjamin in collaboration with Oliver Knussen.

Night music and mysterious voices infuse both Debussy’s evocative Nocturnes and George Benjamin’s new work, Dream of the Song, written for and performed by countertenor Iestyn Davies.

Oliver Knussen and the BBC Symphony Orchestra perform Stravinsky’s Symphony in Three Movements, one of the composer’s most turbulent masterpieces.
