Two moments stand out – Aurora at their loudest, and their quietest. Seeing Michael Gordon’s dizzying Gotham with its extraordinary film backdrop at the Roundhouse in 2012 was overwhleming and unforgettable. At the opposite extreme were the two violins of Berio’s Duetti in the Thriller concert at LSO St Luke’s in 2011. At the end of the piece the sound was so delicate that the silence that followed was one of the deepest I have ever heard. Breathtaking music.
