Oliver Knussen

Miaskovsky's 10th Symphony provides the dramatic highlight, with its tremendous portrayal of a drowning brought on by a curse. But in its perfectly chiselled way, the Concerto for Orchestra by Niccoló Castiglione is no less striking. Alongside them are the orchestral version of Schoenberg's masterly first Chamber Symphony and a new work from Alexander Goehr.

From the complete Sibelius Symphonies, to Dvorak’s neglected masterpiece The Jacobin and thrilling premieres by today’s most exciting composers, there is something for everyone in the BBC Symphony Orchestra’s 2011-12 season. Find out more in our special season preview film:
