Sakari Oramo conductor
Horn players of the BBC SO - Martin Owen, Michael Murray, Andrew Antcliff and Nicholas Hougham

For his second programme in the season, Sakari Oramo offers an exhilarating menu of Beethoven, Schumann and Colin Matthews. Beethoven’s ‘Eroica’ Symphony was, and remains, a revolutionary statement of genius. The blazing ‘hunting’ horns in the symphony’s trio, perfectly echoe Schumann’s glorious Konzertstück for four horns, showcasing soloists from the BBC SO, and the heroic, romantic and soulful qualities of the instrument. Traces Remain, a new commission from Colin Matthews, takes its name and inspiration from a book of essays by Charles Nicholl: ‘the sudden presence, the glimpse behind the curtain, the episode measured in minutes and preserved across the centuries’.

Part of the CBSO Centre Stage season, a series of 50-minute informal and friendly concerts finding the performers ‘at home’ in the CBSO Centre.

Emotion recollected in tranquility: the young Brahms was tormented by an impossible love. Years later, he re-crafted his Op.8 into a trio which distills youthful ardour into music of epic power and deep poetry. Today, it’s the personal choice of one of the world’s greatest living pianists – the incomparable Lars Vogt, who will be performing in close quarters at CBSO Centre.

Laura Samuel violin
James MacMillan conductor
BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra

This will be the BBC SSO’s first major musical event of 2014, and a fascinating overview of a life in music, conducted by the composer himself.

For the first time in over a decade, Scotland’s foremost composer James MacMillan takes to the podium in his native country for a public concert. The programme, to be recorded for of BBC Radio 3’s Hear and Now, features two World Premieres from opposite ends of MacMillan’s career: his latest work The Keening and his early Symphonic Study, written as a graduation piece.

There’s also the Scottish Premiere of A Deep but Dazzling Darkness, a stunningly dramatic reflection on the ability of music to bring comfort, and in this performance a tremendous showcase for the skills of BBC SSO leader Laura Samuel. For Sonny, a gentle elegy in memory of a young child, is premiered in a new arrangement, and Exsultet, his 1998 fanfare for brass quintet (in the revised version for symphonic brass), conjures up a typically MacMillan-like journey from darkness into light.

"The memory of the Isis-Osiris couple came back to me. It contains the novel in nucleo." In his diary, Robert Musil noted this quick comparison between his poem from 1923 and the large work in progress, l’Homme sans qualités. Brother and sister, figures of twinship, a superhumain and violent effort to go beyond duality?
Isis & Osiris, the program of creation by Jacques Lenot divided between a symphony of wind instruments, the earth, and electronics, the sky. Musicians perform under a virtual dome (ambisonics) in IRCAM's Espace de projection where four virtual orchestras are "suspended", meticulously arranged in the room's space.
From the sky, a sonorous dust haze.

Ilan Volkov conductor
Nicolas Hodges piano
BBC Singers

Beethoven’s powerful Seventh Symphony is prefaced by a trio of beguiling modern French works in the first of two concerts pairing Beethoven with recent French music. The BBC Singers have had great success with Boulez’s now-classic work cummings ist der Dichter, which sets the poetry of ee cummings for vocal ensemble and chamber orchestra. Conductor Ilan Volkov, known for his high-voltage performances and radical programmes, presents the UK premiere of Hugues Dufourt’s piano concerto with Nicolas Hodges as soloist. Dufourt’s own world of sonorities reflects that of one of France’s greatest 20th century composers, Gérard Grisey. In his monumental early work Mégalithes, 15 brass players scattered around the hall hurl sonic clusters of shimmering dissonance into the auditorium – a not-to-be-missed experience.

To Scots, living on so many islands and dependent on it for so much, the sea is a constant presence to be loved and admired, but also feared and respected. This complicated relationship with the sea is reflected here in pieces by two of the most important and widely performed living composers.

MacMillan’s Tuireadh laments the dead of the Piper Alpha disaster in great tidal movements of sound and grief. South African composer Volan’s Symphony offers a beautiful and oblique reflection “on the sea and the role of ships and their cargoes in our history”.

JACK Quartet

The JACK Quartet’s concerts prove time and again that we belong to a golden age of chamber music composition, one in which creative diversity and difference are encouraged and celebrated.
This programme, devised by Wigmore Hall’s Composer in Residence Julian Anderson, opens with a seminal work composed in 1931 by Ohio-born Ruth Crawford Seeger, the first woman to receive a Guggenheim Fellowship, and closes with Horaţiu Rădulescu’s evocatively titled Fifth String Quartet of 1995.
Brian Ferneyhough’s wild Exordium, written in honour of Elliott Carter’s 100th birthday in 2008, stands in bold contrast to Julian Anderson’s ‘Light Music’ and the world première of a new score by Christopher Trapani, winner of the 2007 Gaudeamus Prize.

Performed by the BBC Symphony Orchestra with Max Richter, conducted by André de Ridder

Contemporary composer Max Richter premieres his 2002 debut album Memoryhouse with the BBC Symphony Orchestra conducted by André de Ridder.

An homage to Europe and the haunting power of memories, Memoryhouse is the stunning album that announced Max Richter as a major talent. With echoes of his earlier collaborations with Roni Size and electronic duo FSOL, influences of post-rock acts such as Sigur Rós and classical forebears like Arvo Pärt and Philip Glass, this work shows the unique mix of contemporary classical and electronics that would become the signature language in Richter’s musical universe.

Come and experience music by two leading Danish composers. The different levels of mood and emotion created by Poul Ruders have established him as one of the world’s leading composers. Kafkapriccio includes score from his opera, based on Kafka’s The Trial. In contrast, Pelle Gudmundsen-Holmgreen’s compelling, ritualistic command of sound creates music that nags at the imagination long after the performance has ended.

The bleak, enclosed world of a fishing village provides the backdrop for the story of fisherman Peter Grimes and his uneasy relationship with the other inhabitants. Following the death of Grimes's apprentice, the community presumes Grimes to be guilty. Although he is cleared of any blame, the villagers no longer trust him, and when his new apprentice accidentally falls to his death, Grimes spirals towards a tragic breakdown.

The most significant British opera in over two centuries, Peter Grimes is a work of visceral and sustained beauty, and is notable for the orchestral interludes that depict the sea in different moods.

This is the first revival of David Alden's 2009 five-star sell-out production. ENO Music Director Edward Gardner again conducts the electrifying score, with Stuart Skelton heading an outstanding cast in his return to the title role.

Co-produced by ENO, De Vlaamse Opera, Opera de Oviedo and Deutsche Oper Berlin.

Further performances: 1st, 6th, 8th, 14th, 21st, 23rd, 27th February

"We're also very much aware that it’s you who brought democracy to Chile" said Lady Thatcher when she invited the senator Augusto Pinochet to tea in London in 1999, sparing not the slightest compliment for the man who would soon have to stand trial for his crimes. Following the example of Nixon in China by John Adams, the opera Aliados inspired by political history, in this case by the Falklands War in 1982 and the improbable alliance of the Iron Lady, champion of liberalism, with the Chilian general during the Cold War.

The failing memories of the two aged leaders retired from roles of power, revealing archives, and collective history are at the heart of this project by Sebastian Rivas and Esteban Buch, two Argentineans looking back at a decisive event for their generation and their identity. On the theater stage, designed by Antoine Gindt to look like the set of a television program, reality strikes through visual manipulation and stylized singing. An opera in real-time in every sense of the word; historical time and computer time.
