Leila Josefowicz, who was to perform Oliver Knussen’s Violin Concerto, is unable to travel to the UK for this concert due to conditions caused by Hurricane Sandy and is therefore no longer able to perform in this concert. It has been necessary to change the programme which is now as follows:

Oliver Knussen Flourish with Fireworks
Oliver Knussen Choral
Oliver Knussen Whitman Settings
Oliver Knussen Horn Concerto
Oliver Knussen Two Organa
Oliver Knussen Requiem – Songs for Sue
Oliver Knussen Symphony No. 3

BBC Symphony Orchestra
Oliver Knussen
Claire Booth soprano
Martin Owen horn

The Total Immersion weekend comes to a close with a concert featuring major works from across Knussen’s career including the Third Symphony, the dreamlike Whitman Settings , which sets the poetry of Walt Whitman and the moving Reqiuem: Songs for Sue , both of which were written for tonight’s soloist, Claire Booth to perform.
