Ryan Wigglesworth, conductor

Join us for the opening of the BBC SSO’s new season when Ryan Wigglesworth makes his debut as Chief Conductor. For his first outing he’s chosen one of the great ballet scores, Ravel’s Daphnis and Chloé. Dreamlike and seductive, it has a breathtaking, otherworldly beauty as it conjures visions of mythical Greek landscapes with an unrestrained sensuality. No less reserved in his use of colour, Olivier Messiaen’s astonishing series of songs Poèmes pour Mi fuses the physical and spiritual into something unforgettable. As a composer himself, it’s not surprising that Ryan Wigglesworth has chosen a new work to herald his arrival, here in the shape of a piece by Jonathan Woolgar, winner of 2010’s BBC Young Composer.
