Love Song for the City - T01038870832Aurora Orchestra and its conductor Nicholas Collon present Love Song for the City, a characteristically eclectic programme charting a course from violence and destruction to rebirth and the vibrancy of urban life. The desolate post-war German cities of Strauss' Metamorphosen give way to the dizzying growth of modern New York as imagined by Michael Gordon in Gotham, Bill Morrison's breathtaking black-and-white film enriching a visceral contemporary classic. The programme is completed by the Symphonic Dances from Bernstein's West Side Story in a virtuosic new chamber arrangement evoking the flavour of the original West End pit-band instrumentation. Founded in 2005, Aurora Orchestra has been hailed as 'Britain's brightest young ensemble' (The Times) and is going from strength to strength, winning the RPS Ensemble Award earlier this year.Conductor Nicholas Collon.
