BBC Symphony Orchestra
Sakari Oramo conductor
Gil Shaham violin

This kaleidoscopic programme will delight old and young alike, from Dukas’s vividly imagined Sorcerer’s Apprentice to Bartók’s dizzingly virtuoso celebration of the symphony orchestra. Far Eastern colours and sonorities give Chinese-born composer Bright Sheng’s music a distinctive appeal. Sakari Oramo is joined by distinguished Israeli-American violinist Gil Shaham for a performance of the composer’s recent violin concerto.

The concert finishes at approximately 9.45pm

Paul Dukas : The Sorcerer’s Apprentice
Bright Sheng : Violin Concerto
Béla Bartók : Concerto for Orchestra
