After such a forceful start to the concert, comes a spectacular world premiere. The Spanish composer, Oriol Curixent, wrote the “Oraculum” percussion concerto specifically for soloist Vivi Vassileva. Directly after the percussionist’s fulminant success last season, Julia Jones asked her to come back. In this large format work, the demands of a modern piece of concert music meet elements of popular music.
