Aurora Orchestra welcomes Voices Unwrapped Artist-in-Focus Roderick Williams for a special concert of journeys: from darkness to light, joy to sorrow, and regret to redemption.

Curated with Williams, the programme builds gradually from a single solo voice on stage up to the mixed ensemble used by Iain Farrington for his virtuosic chamber arrangement of Mahler’s Songs of a Wayfarer. Highlights include Judith Weir’s meditation on night-time Good Morning, Midnight!, Schoenberg’s masterly Transfigured Night, and Williams’ own arrangements of a trio of Purcell songs.
