BBC Symphony Orchestra/Oramo

Live from the Barbican

Power and passion take a hold as the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Sakari Oramo perform works by Joseph Haydn and Anna Clyne before a new chamber arrangement of Magnus Lindberg's Accused.

From a journey of loss and desolation to the new-found feelings of solace and peace in Anna Clyne’s elegy to her mother to Haydn’s dark-hued and theatrically named The Passion, the BBC SO put you in touch with your innermost emotions in their first live-streamed Barbican concert.

Dazzling soprano Anu Komsi takes to the stage for the world premiere of the chamber orchestra arrangement of Magnus Lindberg’s powerful statement against totalitarianism, concluding the evening with a timely and profound statement on civil rights.

To keep you safe we’re keeping to the 2m rule and have fewer available seats in our venues. We’re also cleaning more often. It’s essential for you to book your tickets before you come and to wear a mask.

In our seated venues, we have specially-distanced seating clusters. You can only sit in the same seating cluster as someone from your own household/bubble. We ask you to not swap seats when you arrive so we can maintain a safe distance between you and other groups.

Co-produced by the Barbican and BBC SO
