For the first in its 2013 New Moves series, Aurora Orchestra collaborates with tenor Allan Clayton to produce a unique and haunting theatrical concert built around Britten’s Nocturne. The programme charts a course through the darkness of a troubled night, with other repertoire including Vivaldi’s La Notte (‘The Night’) and James MacMillan’s Deep but Dazzling Darkness with solo violinist Thomas Gould, commissioned for the opening of LSO St Luke’s in 2003.
Formed in 2005, the Aurora Orchestra is the Associate Orchestra of LSO St Luke’s, an association of which we are very proud. Aurora Orchestra aims to inspire, challenge and astonish new audiences with great music, brilliantly performed. It seeks to be the UK’s most versatile chamber orchestra, combining world class performance with eclectic and innovative programming, a commitment to adventurous collaboration across perceived frontiers of musical genre and artistic form, and a refusal to be bound by convention.
