Northern soul: beneath the midnight sun of Iceland, music somehow sounds different – simultaneously darker and more luminous. Certainly, the music of Anna Thorvaldsdottir and Hildur Guðnadóttir evokes new sonic worlds – though with a solo appearance from the Orchestra’s co-leader Thelma Handy and a roll-call of extraordinary young composers, there’ll be no shortage of wonder tonight. Oh, and a brand-new work – inspired by Liverpool – from 2020 Rushworth Composition Prize winner Alexander Papp. You’ll never look at Bertie and Bella, the Liverbirds on the Liver Building, the same way again… 

This concert will last approximately 75 minutes with no interval.
