Vilde Frang violin
Sakari Oramo conductor
Anna Clyne This Midnight Hour
Britten Violin Concerto
Beethoven Symphony No. 6 in F major 'Pastoral'
PART OF BBC Symphony Orchestra & Chorus 2017-18 Season
Anna Clyne's 2015 orchestral work This Midnight Hour draws inspiration from two poems, one by Juan Ramón Jiménez, the other by Charles Baudelaire, to take the listener on a vivid journey. Vilde Frang plays Britten's Violin Concerto, a work that's finally emerged from the shadows and one that Frang has made her own. Beethoven's Pastoral Symphony makes a wonderful end to the evening, evocative in a very different but equally satisfying way.
The BBC Symphony Orchestra has played a central role at the heart of British musical life since it was founded in 1930, and is passionately committed to performing 20th-century and contemporary music. The orchestra provides the backbone of the BBC Proms, and performs an annual season of concerts at the Barbican, all of which are broadcast on BBC Radio 3. Highlights in its 2014-15 Season include a complete Nielsen Symphony cycle under the baton of Chief Conductor Sakari Oramo, operas by Dalibor and Bartok, and three Total Immersion days.www.bbc.co.uk/orchestras/symphonyorchestra/
