The Symphony No 10 was comissioned and premiered by the LSO in February 2014 to mark the eightieth birthday of Sir Peter Maxwell Davies. Newly-commissioned works are a step into the unknown for composer and commissioner alike. Sometimes remarkable works are born, and sometimes not. But no-one could possibly have guessed in what circumstances the Symphony No 10 would come to be written.

Born in Naples, Bernini was an exceptional talent from an early age and went on to dominate the art world of 17th century Rome. His work epitomised the Baroque style and his sculpture, church interiors and exteriors and town planning could be seen everywhere. Bernini worked under successive Popes; Pope Gregory XV made him a knight and Pope Urban VIII took him as his best friend. He was revered in his time until a jealous rage caused him to have the face of his mistress slashed after discovering her romance with his brother. His reputation fell further after his bell towers for the Cathedral of St Peter's started cracking in 1641. He redeemed himself and kick started his career again with arguably his most famous work, The Ecstasy of St Theresa, in 1652.
