A Tale of Four Cities: 3. London

In London, where Charles Dickens once wrote A Tale of Two Cities, we find the starkest of contrasts. 

After landing at the busy Heathrow, we’ll be received by the genial and sharp-witted Oliver Knussen who immediately gets the listeners’ attention with his ingenious pieces. The public and medial Thomas Adès lends the concert a continental character, and a cool work by Swedish Albert Schnelzer is also presented: Wolfgang is Dancing! We can guess who it’s about; he evidently knew a thing or two about dancing as well!
