From 14th Century Street Music to Joy Division
Our latest album Labyrinths, named ‘Album of the Week’ by Scala Radio, has received both critical and popular acclaim, with tracks from the album having been streamed over a million times since its recent release and the album nearly 2 million times. The concert and album draw together diverse repertoire from the medieval 14th-century street music of La Rotta to contemporary compositions by Nico Muhly, Trish Clowes and the orchestra’s own David Le Page, whose bespoke orchestral arrangements unite the wide-ranging works across the album.
