PART OF BBC Symphony Orchestra & Chorus 2018-19 Season BBC SO Classical for StartersSakari Oramo Conducts

British cellist Steven Isserlis returns to the BBC Symphony Orchestra's season to perform Schumann's pioneering cello concerto - the work that first gave this instrument Romantic voice. Where Schumann looks to the future, Brahms looks back to Beethoven in his taut, tightly constructed Third Symphony, once described as 'the most nearly perfect' of all the composer's symphonies. An exciting world premiere of Richard Causton's newly commissioned Ig zeg: Nu (*I say: Now*) opens the programme.
