Michael Cox flute
BBC Symphony Orchestra
Rumon Gamba conductor

Join the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Rumon Gamba for a concert of contemporary music by Nordic composers at Maida Vale studios.

Hear the BBC Symphony Orchestra's principal flautist Michael Cox delve into the rich and colourful sound world of Soie, the three-movement concerto for flute and orchestra by Finnish composer Lotta Wennäkoski, inspired by images of fabrics and textures. Rumon Gamba also conducts Dag Wirén's high-spirited Third Symphony and Harald Sæverud's protest against German occupation of Norway in his 1943 overture Kjempeviseslåtten (Ballad of Revolt).

This concert is broadcast live on BBC Radio 3’s ‘Afternoon on 3’
