Sakari Oramo conductor
Russell Braun baritone

BBC SO Chief Conductor Sakari Oramo launches the 2016-17 season with a UK premiere from Brett Dean and Richard Straussís extravagant tone poem.

Knocking at the Hellgate is drawn from the BBC SOís Artist in Association Deanís much-admired 2010 opera Bliss and the orchestra are joined by the Canadian baritone Russell Braun for the work. Richard Straussís epic and autobiographical celebration of a heroís life, one of his most extravagant and popular tone-poems, provides late-romantic splendour.

Brett Dean : Knocking at the Hellgate (Suite from Bliss)
