Thrills and high drama are guaranteed with Kabalevsky’s rip-roaring overture and Shostakovich’s powerful Tenth Symphony, all conducted by BBC Symphony Orchestra Chief Conductor Sakari Oramo.

Kabalevsky’s piece, full of fizz and pop, is followed by a very different work, Michael Zev Gordon’s Violin Concerto, performed here with the acclaimed German violinist Carolin Widmann. Shostakovich’s Tenth Symphony, a heartfelt cry for freedom written under the looming presence of Joseph Stalin, is one of the 20th century’s most shattering symphonic experiences.

Charles Ives (1874 – 1954) is undoubtedly the father-figure of North-American modern music. Ahead of its time, his music was innovative, daring and explorative. One of his greatest works, the Trio that opens this concert, is a reflection on the composer’s time at Yale University.

It was Ives that encouraged the late great Elliott Carter (1908 – 2012) to study composition. Carter’s short Figment II recalls fragmentarily bits of Ives’ Concord Sonata and Hallowe’en – two Ives pieces he particularly loved.

As an internationally-renowned contemporary ensemble, BCMG has premiered over 170 works from many of the world’s leading composers – including the world premiere of Carter’s last ever work, Epigrams, at the 2013 Aldeburgh Music Festival.

Paul Thomas Anderson's Oscar-winning film is accompanied by a live orchestral performance of Jonny Greenwood's score. A masterwork of dramatic tension, instrumental experimentation and musical bricolage – it integrates works by Arvo Pärt and Brahms – the soundtrack is realised in a special performance edition by the London Contemporary Orchestra, conducted by Hugh Brunt.

London Contemporary Orchestra has been performing Greenwood’s compositions since 2008, and in 2012 recorded his score for The Master (Greenwood’s second collaboration with Paul Thomas Anderson). Dedicated to the promotion of new music and cross-disciplinary collaboration, the LCO has collaborated with a distinguished array of artists, including Radiohead (on A Moon Shaped Pool), Secret Cinema, Actress, Vivienne Westwood, members of Arcade Fire, Boiler Room, Goldfrapp, Terry Riley, Beck and Foals. Winner of the Ensemble category at the Royal Philharmonic Society Music Awards, the LCO’s soundtrack output also features Theeb, Slow West, Macbeth and Assassin’s Creed.

Håkan Hardenberger trumpet
London Symphony Orchestra

LSO Principal Guest Conductor Daniel Harding conducts the UK premiere performance of Håkan, Mark-Anthony Turnage’s second concerto for virtuoso trumpet player Håkan Hardenberger.

Håkan Hardenberger is the world’s foremost trumpet soloist renowned for his genre-defying performances and tireless exploration of new repertoire. Following the success of his first collaboration with composer Mark Anthony-Turnage on the trumpet concerto From the Wreckage, he presents the UK premiere of Håkan, Turnage’s second work in the genre.

The second half of the concert will see Harding and the LSO tackle Rachmaninov’s emotionally and musically expansive Second Symphony, a work that is considered to be amongst the composer’s finest achievements.
