Sir Andrew Davis and the BBC Symphony Orchestra at the Barbican – 22nd January 2016

sirandrewdavis

Conductor Laureate Sir Andrew Davis takes on Berlioz’s complete ‘dramatic symphony’, a re-telling of Shakespeare’s popular tragedy.

Berlioz’s epic Romeo and Juliet was made possible by a gift of 20,000 francs from the violinist Nicoló Paganini, and turned out to be one of his most enduring masterpieces. He came to view the Love Scene as one of his own favourite compositions, though he warned that it was hugely demanding and required ‘long, patient rehearsal, impeccably directed’, which is just what you can expect from Davis, the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Chorus.

Programme

Berlioz Romeo and Juliet

Performers

BBC Symphony Orchestra

BBC Symphony Chorus

Sir Andrew Davis conductor

Michèle Losier mezzo soprano

Samuel Boden tenor

David Soar bass
