Jukka-Pekka Saraste conductor

An invigorating concert featuring the world premiere of a Concerto for Brass and Orchestra, Haydn’s Symphony No 83 amusingly nicknamed ‘The Hen’, and Stravinsky’s epic The Firebird.

The BBC SO’s brass section shines as soloists in this world premiere of Diana Burrell’s new concerto which is followed by Haydn and his clucking hen. Stravinsky’s The Firebird – the work that seized the ears of Paris’s elite with its urgent rhythms and evocative Russian folk melodies – offers a splendid ending to a colourful concert.
