BBC Symphony Orchestra / Stasevska Rachmaninov Symphonic Dances

October 26, 2019 @ 7:30 pm


Composed in the shadow of the Second World War, Britten’s Sinfonia da Requiem opens Dalia Stasevska’s first concert at the Barbican as the BBC Symphony Orchestra’s Principal Guest Conductor.

Following Stravinsky’s Symphony of Psalms – a devout musical gesture, reimagining religious rituals on a symphonic scale, for which the BBCSO are joined by the BBC Singers, they complete the concert with Rachmaninov’s exhilarating Symphonic Dances. Although composed just three years before his death, it pulses with exhilarating rhythmic energy, embracing jazz, plainchant and the waltz.
