Summary

A cast of pre-eminent performers including Mark Padmore and Philippe Honoré and conductor Jeffrey Skidmore join Britten Sinfonia and Ex Cathedral to explore the shared ground between Indian classical and choral music. The performance culminates with The Traveller – a meditation on the cycle of life with texts curated by Vikram Seth and glorious music by Alec Roth – and two extraordinary works by Roxanna Panufnik that brilliantly fuse both sound worlds.
