Pascal Dusapin Violin Concerto (UK premiere)
Honegger Rugby
Elgar Enigma Variations

BBC Symphony Orchestra
Sakari Oramo
conductor
Renaud Capuçon violin

A programme exploring every facet of the orchestra from Debussy’s exquisitely languorous and erotic ballet Prélude à l’après midi d’un faune, Honegger’s invigorating paen to the game of rugby to Elgar’s famous Enigma Variations, in which he so deftly and movingly enshrined the characters of his friends. In between, gifted French violinist Renaud Capuçon will give the UK premiere of Pascal Dusapin’s Violin Concerto, that promises sonic experiment married to emotional directness.

The concert finishes at approximately 9.50pm

This concert is part of the BBC Symphony Orchestra’s French series supported by Diaphonique, the Franco-British contemporary music fund.
