John Wilson conductor
National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain
CBSO Youth Chorus

 John Adams describes his Guide to Strange Places as a journey into 'an imagined, unexpected underworld', lit up by dark, violent textures and vivid orchestral colours. In The Planets, Holst uses the full spectrum of the orchestra to give a musical depiction of the Solar System. The 165-strong National Youth Orchestra also performs Benjamin Britten's brooding depiction of the Suffolk coast, the Four Sea Interludes.
