Renowned composer Helen Grime makes her LSO Live debut with Woven Space.
Originally beginning life as Fanfares, a single movement that opened This Is Rattle, the RPS Award-winning festival that marked Sir Simon’s start as Music Director of the London Symphony Orchestra, the work is inspired by the willow sculptures of artist Laura Ellen Bacon, which the composer discovered entwined among trees in the gardens of Chatsworth House.
