Programme Note

Chroma comprises seven pieces of music by British composer Joby Talbot. Four of the works are Talbot's original music, including the high octane Hovercraft. The remaining three pieces are Talbot's own orchestral arrangements of three tracks originally by The White Stripes. The work was requested by Wayne McGregor, resident choreographer for the Royal Ballet in London, whose energy driven choreography alongside designs by architect John Pawson make for a thrilling piece of music and dance.
