Edward Gardner and the BBC Symphony Orchestra at the Barbican – 17th December 2015



Edward Gardner directs Tippett’s moving oratorio A Child of Our Time, prefaced by Beethoven’s Apollonian fourth piano concerto and Knussen’s delightful suite from Higgledy Piggledy Pop.

An ideal cast feature in Tippett’s extraordinarily prescient work, begun at the start of the Second World War, prefiguring its atrocities. Gifted New Generation Artist Louis Schwizgebel takes on Beethoven’s graceful fourth concerto, while we follow Maurice Sendak’s dog Jennie to heaven in Knussen’s affectionate requiem The Way to Castle Yonder.
