Info for Insomnia

Insomnia is the second Warner Classics album from the innovative, imaginative Aurora Orchestra and its Principal Conductor Nicholas Collon. In a typically colourful themed programme it explores the night, its thoughts and dreams and the hazy space between waking and sleeping. Britten’s Nocturne – with tenor Allan Clayton – and Brett Dean’s Pastoral Symphony are juxtaposed with music by Couperin, Ligeti, Gurney, The Beatles and R.E.M.

While its name evokes the dawn, the Aurora Orchestra has chosen to devote its second Warner Classics release to an exploration of a troubled night – its thoughts and dreams and the hazy space between waking and sleeping. The album carries a striking, but apt name: Insomnia.
