BBC Philharmonic
Conductor Clark Rundell

Conductor Clark Rundell opens this afternoon’s programme with Lindberg’s Ottoni – an emotional tour de force for orchestral brass. Completed in 2005 for the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, this highly expressive piece shines with instrumental colour.

Next, the orchestra play Ayrshire-born James MacMillan’s 2012 Olympic commission Fanfare Upon One Note – a two minute blaze of brass.

Completing this afternoon is Messiaen’s Et Exspecto Resurrectionem Mortuorum, a musical commemoration of the victims of two world wars. With a huge dynamic range, this powerful piece will resonate with you long after the final note.
