  • Vijay Iyer piano
  • Aurora Orchestra
  • Duncan Ward conductor

In a programme featuring the exceptional musicians of Aurora Orchestra, Wigmore Hall’s Composer in Residence will also perform with the group his substantial newly-commissioned work, which received its world première in Los Angeles in January 2019. ‘Crisis Modes,’ says the composer, ‘offers a version of the present in which we call each other to action.’
