BBC Philharmonic | Janáček and Tchaikovsky

30 September 2023 @ 19:30 - 21:30

From £14.50

Chief Conductor John Storgårds sets the stage for our 2023-24 season with Janáček’s gargantuan Sinfonietta, brimming with brass and bold yet bridled melodies.

John Storgårds conductor
Dame Sarah Connolly (mezzo-soprano)

Janáček Sinfonietta
Alma Mahler arr. Colin and David Matthews Six Songs
Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 6 in B minor, ‘Pathétique’

Its galvanising energy plays foil to the emotional outpourings of Tchaikovsky’s swan song, his Sixth Symphony. Premiered only days before the composer’s death, the Symphony remains an enigma – its only truly agreeable mark, its sheer passion. Separating both of these titanic works, Dame Sarah Connolly joins us for an exploration of some of history’s less well-trodden territory in a collection of Alma Mahler’s orchestrated songs.
