The National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain return to conjure a series of vivid worlds, both real and imagined.

The sea roars and shimmers in Debussy’s La mer, Mussorgsky paints eerie visions of a Witches’Sabbath, while Ligeti’s Lontano summons the ‘dream worlds of childhood’.

Ravel’s brooding Concerto for the Left Hand was commissioned by a pianist who lost an arm in the First World War.
