Programme Note

Eric Whitacre’s new work Deep Field is inspired by images taken from the Hubble Space Telescope - and offers the audience a chance to participate in a novel way. In his popular Cloudburst, too, you can help create the sound of rain falling. Plus, American classics by Copland and Gershwin.
