Programme: “I’m delighted to have been invited back to work with the NYBBW again next year, which gives me a fantastic chance to build on what we started on this year’s course. For 2019 I have chosen two blockbusting major works, both of which aim to depict in music some of life’s most intriguing and spiritual mysteries. Half a century after it was composed, we will tackle Gilbert Vinter’s Spectrum – a vivid study in colours, from the warlike Red to the luscious Green and the autobiographical deathly Purple with many in between. I have also chosen Philip Sparke’s Music of the Spheres from 2004 – a tour-de-force depicting the stars and planets of the universe, with mystique, grandeur and Hollywood excitement in equal measure” Philip Harper
