When the LPO premiered George Benjamin’s Sudden Time in 1993, we launched a modern British classic. Edward Gardner brings it home tonight, and joins Serge Rachmaninoff in exile in America, grappling with the ghosts of an old world amid the energy of the new in his Symphonic Dances – arguably the greatest symphony he never wrote.
