Alan Buribayev conductor

Kazakh conductor Alan Buribayev conducts Akhmet Zhubanov and Khamidi Latyf’s symphonic arrangement from the opera Abai. Both composers were pivotal in the development of Kazakh musical culture in the 20th century. Irish pianist Finghin Collins joins the BBC SO for the UK premiere of The Binding of the Years, by Belfast-born composer Deirdre Gribbin. The concert opens with three new chamber works by composers from the Guildhall School of Music & Drama, and closes with Prokofiev’s nostalgic final symphony, completed in 1952, the year before his death.

Contemporary Composers : Guildhall Octets
Zhubanov/ Hamidi : Wedding Dances from the opera Abai
Deidre Gribbin : The Binding of the Years
Sergei Prokofiev : Symphony No. 7
