Five Telegrams

Five Telegrams was a unique commission between 59 Productions and composer Anna Meredith, created as a joint venture between the BBC Proms, Edinburgh International Festival and 14-18 Now. Using a blend of music and projections, visuals were projected onto the external and internal façades of the Royal Albert Hall as well as the exterior of the Usher Hall, alongside a brand new orchestral score, performed by the BBC Symphony Orchestra, under Sakari Oramo.
The piece draws upon contemporary responses to the communication infrastructure of the First World War commemorating the end of the ‘Great War’ in its centenary year.  We also celebrate the year of young people in Edinburgh, collaborating with many young people not only in the performance of the music, but also with costume design and filming elements of the project too.
