‘Earth, nothing more. Earth, nothing less. And let that be enough for you…’. For some composers, nature isn’t just an inspiration for music. Nature is music. Sibelius imagined his Second Symphony as a great river of melody. Whilst John Luther Adams’ new choral epic Vespers of the Blessed Earth turns images of clouds, canyons, and endangered birds into sounds of soul-shaking beauty. Join us and witness the birth of a masterpiece.

  • John Luther Adams Vespers of the Blessed Earth (UK premiere)
  • Sibelius Symphony No. 2
