Schumann Konzertstuck
Colin Matthews Traces Remain (BBC commission: world premiere)
Beethoven Symphony No 3, Eroica

BBC Symphony Orchestra
Sakari Oramo
conductor
Horn players from the BBC SO

For his second programme in the season, Sakari Oramo offers an exhilarating menu of Beethoven, Schumann and Colin Matthews. Beethoven’s Eroica Symphony was, and remains, a revolutionary statement of genius. From the blazing ‘hunting’ horns in the symphony’s trio, we move to Schumann’s glorious Konzertstück for four horns, showcasing soloists from the orchestra, and the heroic, romantic and soulful qualities of the instrument. Traces Remain, a new commission from Colin Matthews, takes its name and inspiration from a book of essays by Charles Nicholl: ‘the sudden presence, the glimpse behind the curtain, the episode measured in minutes and preserved across the centuries’.

The concert finishes at approximately 9.45pm

Singers at Six, St Giles Cripplegate, 6pm
The BBC Singers conducted by Paul Brough perform partsongs by Brahms, Mendelssohn and Robert and Clara Schumann. Conducted by Paul Brough.
