BBC Symphony Orchestra
Edward Gardner conductor
Carolin Widmann violin

Edward Gardner conducts the BBC SO in his first Total Immersion concert. Julian Anderson’s Eden (2005) celebrates the sculptor Constantin Brancusi while Imagin’d Corners (2002) revolves around Anderson’s attraction to the French horn. Carolin Widmann, a passionate champion of new music, joins the BBC SO for In lieblicher Bläue, a work that uses space in a way that only a live performance can reveal. Symphony (2003) is a study in immobility and gradual growth while Fantasias (2009) is, in Anderson’s words, ‘for all its wild contrasts, a celebration of the modern symphony orchestra’. Originally written for the Cleveland Orchestra, its virtuosity should prove a perfect climax to a weekend celebrating one of the UK’s most distinctive and original musical voices.
