Taking cues from Philip Larkin’s poem, we begin with Radiohead’s guitarist Jonny Greenwood and his composition 'Water'.
Here instead of seeing refractions of light, we hear them – cascading, skipping, sliding and overlapping one another.
Refraction leads to reverberation with Saint-Saëns’ Third Symphony, the French composer’s most famous work. Performed on one of the largest organs of its kind in the world, it’s a resonant finish to a truly unique line-up. Dane Lam conducts.
