A classic, all-British programme featuring two established masterpieces from the period immediately following the Second World War, and a modern gem from Thomas Adès. Subtitled 'Concentric Paths', it consists of three spellbinding movements - 'Rings', 'Paths' and 'Rounds' - that constantly arrest the attention with their audacious creative surge and sense of spiralling towards the unknown.
