Book description
Live at the BBC Proms: BBC Concert Orchestra and Principal Guest Conductor Anna-Maria Helsing with James McVinnie (organ), in music by Rautavaara, Arvo Part, Philip Glass and ending with Samy Moussa's A Globe Itself Infolding.

Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London
Presented by Georgia Mann

Rautavaara's expansive Cantus Arcticus pairs field recordings of bird song with live orchestra; exciting and inventive organ virtuoso James McVinnie plays Philip Glass's hypnotic Mad Rush for solo organ, and joins the BBC CO for Canadian composer Samy Moussa's 2014 piece A Globe Itself Infolding. The chill-out vibe runs through two short pieces by Johann Johannsson; and envelop yourself in the warm atmosphere of Judith Weir's Still, Glowing.

Rautavaara: Cantus Arcticus Op.61 for orchestra & taped bird song
Judith Weir: Still, Glowing
Philip Glass: Mad Rush
Arvo Pärt: Festina Lente for string orchestra and harp
Johann Johannsson: Good Night Day
Messiaen: La Joie de la grâce from Livre du Saint Sacrement
Johann Johannsson: A Sparrow Alighted on Our Shoulder
Samy Moussa: A Globe Itself Infolding

James McVinnie (organ)
BBC Concert Orchestra
Anna-Maria Helsing (conductor)

James McVinnie is a chameleon among organists who has held titles at Westminster Abbey and St Paul’s Cathedral, yet also worked with Philip Glass and The National’s Bryce Dessner. In a Prom that explores the organ in a contemporary light, he navigates the time-warping oscillations of Philip Glass’s Minimalist Mad Rush, before giving the UK premiere of Samy Moussa’s A Globe Itself Infolding with the BBC Concert Orchestra and Principal Guest Conductor Anna-Maria Helsing.
