Raising the Roof

Part of Contemporary Edit

The London Philharmonic Orchestra presents revitalising works by Saint-Saëns, Ravel and Nico Muhly.

Everything old is new again. Maurice Ravel takes a nostalgic look back at the Viennese waltz, and sees a world in turmoil.

Saint-Saëns sets out to capture the spirit of Beethoven and – with the help of an organ and a full orchestra – ends up by blowing the roof off.

And New York’s coolest living composer embraces the King of Instruments, and places his new Organ Concerto amidst ghosts from four centuries.

‘It was important that buried in the DNA of this was something old’, says Muhly.

With Muhly’s dedicatee James McVinnie at the organ tonight, this should be an ear-tingling experience.
