House Programme

 Leaflet

Hong Kong composer Fung Lam was in his 20s when the BBC commissioned Unlocking for a radio programme in 2008. That made him the youngest Chinese composer ever commissioned to write for the BBC and also confirmed him as a significant orchestral composer on the world stage. Hear that work LIVE for the first time in Asia alongside two weird and wonderful tales from France! Hear Associate Conductor Perry So bring to life Berlioz’s vivid portrayal of an opium-induced nightmare – complete with witches’ revelries and a musical beheading – as he directs one of the great orchestral showpieces of the 19th century, while Argentinean mezzo-soprano, Daniela Mack, revels in the exotic and sensual pleasures of Ravel’s song-cycle derived from the legendary Arabian Nights tales.
