Greenwood curated the bill and also played bass guitar and tanpura for Prom 70. The program began with a performance of 17th century composer Heinrich Ignaz Franz von Biber’s Passacaglia in G minor, followed by Polish composer Krzysztof Penderecki’s Sinfonietta for strings. After a brief break, the orchestra played Greenwood’s “Three Miniatures from Water” and “88 (No. 1),” as well as Steve Reich’s Pulse, before closing with Horror vacui.
