BBC Symphony Orchestra Perform Bacewicz, Mozart & Szymanowski 10 Feb

A performance of two Polish composers Bacewicz & Szymanowski alongside Mozart by the BBC Symphony Orchestra at the Barbican.

10 February 19:30, the Barbican, London

Tenor Nicky Spence will be among the performers alongside the BBC Symphony Chorus and BBC Symphony Orchestra in a performance of Grażyna Bacewicz’s Symphony No.4 and Szymanowski’s Symphony No.3 at the Barbican, conducted by Sakari Oramo.

Description of the event from the BBC website:

“To be completely honest, I compose, because I find it pleasurable” said Grazyna Bacewicz, and her Fourth Symphony is like a bolt of electricity: energetic, atmospheric, and utterly original. It’s a gripping contrast to the fragrant ecstasies of Szymanowski’s ‘Song of the Night’, a symphony like no other from a composer who worshipped sensuality and sunlight.

For Sakari Oramo, though, these two great Polish symphonies are natural companions – and both make an unforgettable impression. He’s placing them both alongside the timeless beauty of one of Mozart’s most personal masterpieces – the magnificent Sinfonia Concertante, played today by two former BBC New Generation Artists who just happen to be two of the most charismatic string players of our time. This is music that demands no less.
