Programme

Dani Howard Fanfare

LCO New Compositions

Dvorak Symphony No. 9 ‘From The New World’

 

Christopher Warren Green conductor

 

LCO burst into their next century with a voyage of musical discovery and new beginnings. We welcome Dani Howard to take the baton from Freya Waley-Cohen and start her year as LCO Composer in Residence with the ringing brass of her glorious Fanfare. How exciting to be able to hear five world-first performances written by the participants of LCO New, our scheme for emerging composers, as we mark the end of the project but the beginning of their next chapter. Finally, Dvorak’s rousing Symphony No.9 ‘From the New World’.. This piece is a mood-board inspired by the vast open spaces of Iowa, and celebrating both Black Spirituals and Native American musical traditions.
