Leading Polish film composer Zbigniew Preisner conducts the Britten Sinfonia strings and Crouch End Festival Chorus in the UK premiere of Diaries of Hope – a new work inspired by the diaries and poems of Polish children who were victims of the Holocaust.

Lisa Gerrard from spellbinding duo Dead Can Dance – nominated for an Oscar for her vocals on major film Gladiator and two Golden Globes for The Insider and Ali – performs in the principal vocal role alongside boy soprano Archie Buchanan.

Best known for his scores for the films of Krzysztof Kieslowski (Dekalog, The Double Life Of Veronique, Three Colours Blue and more) and for Requiem for my friend, his moving tribute to Kieslowski, Preisner is one of the most celebrated film composers of his generation and recipient of many accolades including a Silver Bear from the Berlin Film Festival and two Césars from the French Film Academy.

His String Quintet receives its UK première in this concert. Mozart’s String Quintet in G minor K516, completed in May 1787, distils the restless energy of its composer’s professional setbacks to deliver a transcendent response to personal cares.

HK Gruber conductor | Lucy Hall soprano

Manchester has always welcomed musicians from different lands. During his time as the BBC Philharmonic's official Composer /Conductor, the Austrian maverick HK "Nali" Gruber has shown us a few things that we never realised about ourselves - like just how close Vienna is to the Mancunian way. In 2010 during the Mahler in Manchester festival we asked a number of composers to take their inspiration from Mahler and create new works to accompany all of his symphonies. Tonight Nali gives you a second chance to enjoy four of these Mahler companions again.

Given its first ever performance at Glyndebourne in 1946, Benjamin Britten created this opera with the poet Ronald Duncan, who wrote about their collaboration: ‘Britten and I worked at the same desk. We first discussed the shape of the whole drama and then spent several days working over this in order to reduce it to its essential simplicity. We kept our work fluid – even after it had gone to the printer and engraver, much to their dismay.’

The result of this close collaboration is an extraordinary and tightly focussed treatment of a legend which has acquired numerous layers in painting, poetry and drama. Lucretia is raped by the tyrant Tarquinius Superbus, ruler of Rome, and elects to kill herself rather than live with the shame. The action of the opera is commented on throughout by a Male and Female Chorus who occupy another dimension, at times narrating the story and at times voicing the thoughts of the different characters.

The central role of Lucretia is one which engages the talents of a singing actress to the utmost and one with which director Fiona Shaw will empathise keenly, drawing on her own experiences as both a performer and a director.

It was in describing this work that Britten coined the term ‘chamber opera’, creating a work of distilled power and refinement with a cast of eight and an orchestra of 12 players and piano.

The time of beginning based on Ovid, the time of the first men, the time of civilizations: Raphaël Cendo has arranged his epic for choir, ensemble, and electronics in three large chapters, with, by way of an epilogue, uses this fragment of Heraclitus: If one does not hope, one will not find the unhoped-for, since there is no trail leading to it and no path. Registre, according to the composer, designates the book of memories, "memory of lights that transmitted a common, far away, past, milestones of our Humanity".

The Hallé
Markus Stenz conductor | Carolyn Sampson soprano | Neal Davies bass-baritone | Hallé Choir

This event celebrates The Royal Philharmonic Society Bicentenary 1813-2013.

Principal Guest Conductor Markus Stenz has forged a strong relationship with the Hallé Choir and here directs one of the great masterpieces of the choral repertoire, Brahms’s German Requiem. Its title aside, the work has an appeal that transcends both national boundaries and religious beliefs (Brahms even considered naming it a ‘Human Requiem’) and it remains a deeply moving experience for audiences everywhere. While its musical language is unmistakably that of Brahms, it also looks back to Bach and to the composers of the Renaissance. Brahms’s progression from suffering to eventual consolation is thus both dramatically and musically fascinating. Wolfgang Rihm is a composer who never fails to confound and enthral. The concert opens with his Tribute (Über die Linie VIII), an homage to Benjamin Britten commissioned by the Royal Philharmonic Society and given its world premiere by Sir Mark and the Hallé at the 2013 Aldeburgh Festival.

This colossal piece, one of the most ambitious that Zappa ever wrote, is performed by the full forces of the BBC Concert Orchestra, Southbank Sinfonia, London Voices and a large cast of rock musicians, singers and actors.

Banned from live performance at the time of its composition, and a cult classic on film and on record ever since, 200 Motels can finally be heard on stage in its full glory.

Covent Garden, London

Royal Opera

‘Man is an abyss – you feel giddy when you look into it.’ So declares Wozzeck in Alban Berg’s harrowing psychological drama. The title character is a disturbed man who is used for experimentation, taunted for his poverty and inarticulacy, and finally, in despair, driven to murder the only person he loves. The opera is based on the incomplete play Woyzeck by Georg Büchner. It was given its premiere in 1925 in Berlin and rapidly became extremely successful.

Berg’s music is both rapturous and terrifying. The score is richly varied, from the depiction of Wozzeck’s terrifying visions to Marie’s exquisitely gentle lullaby to her son, to the black comedy of the Doctor and the Captain’s music. Berg also draws heavily on folk song, giving a vivid picture of the working-class community in which the characters live. A white-tiled laboratory provides the claustrophobic setting for Keith Warner’s uncompromising staging. The production marked Warner’s directorial debut at Covent Garden and received an Olivier Award in 2003 for Best New Opera Production.

Scottish Chamber Orchestra

An unmissable concert! It has been a while since the SCO last premiered a work from its old friend, the Master of the Queen’s Music. With Knussen directing (he is a passionate devotee) this will be special. No less remarkable is the opportunity to hear Serkin play the Bartók. A wonderful concerto with Hungarian folk influences vying with Wagner’s Tristan, hints of jazz and an evocation of night music in what amounts to a passionate and joy-filled love song to his wife. Stravinsky closes the evening powerfully and grandly with his symphony.

Sir Peter Maxwell Davies on his new work for the Orchestra:
"In the late ‘eighties, as composer in residence to the SCO, I was commissioned to write my ten Strathclyde Concertos for the Orchestra. This involved writing for and working with the leaders of each section, and conducting performances of these works not only in Scotland, but also in Europe and America.

It is a great privilege, with this history, to be invited to write a work for the SCO’s fortieth birthday, as a vote of thanks for a wonderful musical experience with them in the past, and also as a vote of confidence in their glorious future."

‘My subject is war, and the pity of war.’

Benjamin Britten’s War Requiem interweaves the poetry of Wilfred Owen with the words of the Requiem Mass in a deeply moving and powerful work. Written for the consecration of Coventry Cathedral after its destruction in the Second World War, this great work remains as relevant today as ever. Semyon Bychkov conducts the BBC Symphony Orchestra, the BBC Symphony Chorus and superb soloists in a performance of the work in Britten’s 100th anniversary year, on Remembrance Sunday and in an iconic building whose association with remembrance goes back nearly a century.
