    Daphne Oram’s visionary Still Point fills the cavernous space of the Royal Albert Hall for the first time in the premiere of a revised realisation based on recently discovered archive material. Composed in 1949 – almost a decade before Oram co-founded the BBC Radiophonic Workshop – the piece was possibly the first to combine a live orchestra with live electronic manipulations, here played via turntables. For double orchestra, treated instrumental recordings, five microphones, echo and tone controls. World premiere of new realisation by Shiva Feshareki and James Bulley.
