Reflections of light
‘Where any-angled light would congregate endlessly.’
Sometimes even a glass of water can be your muse. 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.
