Elsewhere, a selection of songs from Mahler's Des Knaben Wunderhorn is sung by Dutch baritone Henk Neven, who has been described variously as 'outstanding' (Sunday Times), an 'exceptional voice' (The Guardian) and a singer with 'astonishing technical finesse' (The Times).

Jacob Ter Veldhuis, composer of self-styled 'avant-garde pop', collaborated with Jörgen van Rijen to create 'I was like WOW!' for trombone and video, a melodious and poignant meditation on the stories of Iraq War veterans. Van Rijen, who is principal trombonist of the Royal Concertgebouw who is principal trombonist of the Royal Concertgebouw and Lucerne Festival Orchestras.
