The London Philharmonic Orchestra’s Education department recently teamed up with our partners at Glyndebourne for a joint composition project for A-level students, inspired by Janácek’s opera The Cunning Little Vixen. Led by Luke Styles – Glyndebourne Young Composer in Residence – 12 students from the East Sussex Academy of Music in Lewes and Bishop Thomas Grant School in Lambeth, London, created work for their Music A-Level exams, using Janácek’s opera as inspiration. The resulting compositions, including a new work by Luke Styles, were performed at Glyndebourne on 27 May, with Glyndebourne singers and players from the LPO.
This short film goes behind the scenes of the project and charts the success of the students involved, with footage of their final performance at Glyndebourne.
