Resonate: Velocity by Gavin Higgins
About the piece
Inspired by Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring, Velocity is a virtuosic and dramatic work that has been described as a high octane curtain raising fanfare ideally suited to open the RSNO’s prestigious 2016:17 Season Finale, where it will receive its Scottish premiere in May 2017.
