BBC Philharmonic
Andrew Gourlay Conductor
Narek Hakhnazaryan Cello
Expand

Andrew Gourlay, also a trombonist and pianist by training, conducts today’s studio concert – opening with British composer Cooke and his Sixth Symphony.

The orchestra are joined by BBC New Generation Artist, Narek Hakhnazarya, for the poetry of Schumann's Cello Concerto, before this afternoon’s programme closes the way that it began – with the work of a British composer.

Elgar’s Dream Children, inspired by writing from Charles Lamb in 1822, leaps from the pages of an essay to the pages of a score and conveys both a wistful longing and nostalgia for lost youth.


Arnold Cooke : Symphony No.6
Robert Schumann : Cello Concerto in A minor

Haunting, spiritual, ecstatic: Jonathan Harvey’s music blurs the boundaries between east and west, body and soul. Its lucid, bell-like resonances and pioneering use of electronics will take you on a journey into new and transformative worlds. Mortuos Plango, Vivos Voco is an electro-acoustic masterpiece. Spinning sonorities ring out as it blends sound samples of a cathedral bell and the voice of a chorister. The looped, harmonised trumpet parts in Other Presences weave sounds that echo the music of Tibetan Buddhist purification rituals. Forms of emptiness sets the vivid flashes of joy in poetry by E.E Cummings against a Buddhist Sanskrit chant, creating moments that feel transient and scarcely real.

Experience Harvey’s compelling music among Britten’s virtuosic cantata Ad Majoren Dei Gloriam and a new work by Wim Henderickx, whose music reflects his fascination for eastern sound-worlds and philosophies.

Aurora Orchestra

Aurora Orchestra’s imaginative programmes and support for new music combine here, aided by a Wigmore Hall commission from Anna Meredith, herself a fearless genre-hopping, boundary-pushing composer, and Ligeti’s Ten pieces for wind quintet, a collection of intense avant-garde miniatures completed in 1968. Beethoven’s Septet still sounds as fresh today as when it was first performed over two centuries ago.

Daniel Harding conductor
Nikolaj Znaider violin
Christiane Karg soprano
London Symphony Orchestra

The only concerto Sibelius ever wrote and a vision of heaven from Mahler share the bill in Daniel Harding’s first concert of the season with the London Symphony Orchestra.

Many listeners describe Sibelius’s Violin Concerto as symphonic, with the orchestra pushing to the fore, but that doesn’t make the solo part any less demanding. Danish virtuoso Nikolaj Znaider is sure to take on the challenge with usual technical prowess and lyricism.

Well known for bringing together huge orchestral forces, for his fourth symphony Mahler decided to dial things back – by his standards at least. Taking inspiration from a set of folk poems, Des Knaben Wunderhorn, this more intimate of symphonies embarks on a journey to innocence and ends with a child’s naive vision of heaven where 'Wine doesn't cost a penny and the angels bake the bread'.


Jack Sheen : Lung
Jean Sibelius : Violin Concerto
Gustav Mahler : Symphony No 4

BBC Symphony Orchestra
Sakari Oramo conductor
Russell Braun baritone

BBC SO Chief Conductor Sakari Oramo launches the 2016-17 season with a UK premiere from Brett Dean and Richard Strauss’s extravagant tone poem.

Knocking at the Hellgate is drawn from the BBC SO’s Artist in Association Dean’s much-admired 2010 opera Bliss and the orchestra are joined by the Canadian baritone Russell Braun for the work. Richard Strauss’s epic and autobiographical celebration of a hero’s life, one of his most extravagant and popular tone-poems, provides late-romantic splendour.
