Thomas Ades conducts the BBC Symphony Orchestra and soloists Christianne Stotijn and Simon Keenlyside in the world premiere of his Totentanz, a commission in memory of Lutoslawski, which sets an anonymous 15th-century text that accompanied a frieze destroyed when Lubeck's Marienkirche was bombed in the Second World War.
