BBC Philharmonic - Mussorgsky, Shostakovich, Anna Clyne & Rachmaninov

theatre

Conductor Ben Gernon joins the BBC Philharmonic to bring us into the new year as we begin the second half of our 2022-23 season.

The concert opens with an atmospheric picture of dawn over Moscow in Rimsky-Korsakov’s orchestration of the Prelude to Act I of Mussorgsky’s opera Khovantshina.

Celloist Alban Gerhardt deftly weaves his way through Anna Clyne’s masterful DANCE, a five-movement folkish foray into the timelessly lyrical lines of Persian poet Rumi.

Brimming with both complexity and personality, Clyne’s concerto whets our appetite for Rachmaninov’s full-blooded Second Symphony –  here lush melody and symphonic depth flow from one of Russia’s most Romantic souls.
