Radiohead lead guitarist Jonny Greenwood debuted a classical musical composition at BBC Proms, which took place at London’s Royal Albert Hall on September 11. Horror vacui featured violinist Daniel Pioro as the soloist, accompanied by 68 string players from the Proms Youth Ensemble and conductor Hugh Brunt of the London Contemporary Orchestra. The programming was curated by Greenwood, which started with Heinrich Ignaz Franz von Biber’s Passacaglia in G minor, followed by his own “Three Miniatures from Water” and “88 (No. 1),” before closing out Prom 70 with his new 27-minute work.

Get a glimpse of the haunting Horror vacui above and head over to the BBC to listen to the full set. In other music news, be sure to check out our roundup of the best new tracks released this week.
