Sibelius Tapiola Mark-Anthony Turnage Trumpet Concerto ('From the Wreckage') Beethoven Symphony No 3 ('Eroica')
Daniel Harding conductor Håkan Hardenberger trumpet London Symphony Orchestra
The first of three concerts celebrating one of the most admired composers of a generation: Mark Anthony Turnage. 'From the Wreckage' (‘outstanding: the music begins hellishly but gradually picks up a bluesy swing… I was mesmerised.’ The Times) was premiered in 2005; original soloist Håkan Hardenberger returns to reprise the role. Tapiola brings Finnish forest God Tapio to shimmering life while Beethoven’s 'Eroica' dwells in the human realm of roaring victories and crushing defeats.
