BBC Symphony Orchestra at Maida Vale

BBC Symphony Orchestra at Maida Vale

BBC Maida Vale Studios, London
Maida Vale One, Delaware Road, London
United Kingdom

Continuing its focus on rarely-performed British music this autumn, the BBC Symphony Orchestra and conductor Michael Seal give a concert of music by Malcolm Arnold, Britten and Adrian Sutton at Maida Vale Studios.

Malcolm Arnold's fifth symphony is a remembrance of four of his friends who tragically died at a young age. With its underlying dark tensions, and Adagio, it has a clear Mahlerian influence, and was said to be the composer's favourite of his nine symphonies. Hear Britten's highly virtuosic Diversions for Piano Left Hand and Orchestra performed by the gifted young pianist and BBC New Generation Artist Pavel Kolesnikov, plus a new short orchestral piece by Adrian Sutton, composer for the National Theatre's production of War Horse.

This concert will be broadcast live on BBC Radio 3's Afternoon on 3.

Admission is on a first-come, first-served basis. Please note that as not everyone who asks for tickets uses them, to make sure we have a full house we send out more tickets than there are places. We do our best to get the numbers right, but unfortunately we occasionally have to disappoint people so please arrive early.

Adrian Sutton : A Fist Full of Fives
Benjamin Britten : Diversions, Op 21
Malcolm Arnold : Symphony no. 5, op. 74
