Julian Anderson's new orchestral work, Incantesimi (co-commissioned by the RPS) hits the ground running following the world premiere in Berlin on 8 June.
"The work has all the aural brilliance of a concerto for orchestra and gives an impression of grandeur despite its short duration – around eight minutes. The Philharmonie’s acoustic made every detail sing out."
- Fiona Maddocks, The Guardian
