Markus Stenz and the BBC Symphony Orchestra at the Barbican – 21st February 2016



Conductor Markus Stenz makes a welcome return to the Barbican for this all-German programme, which takes in Beethoven’s ever popular fifth symphony.

Schumann’s  piano concerto precedes this, performed by Honens International Piano Competition winner, Hong Xu. Frenesia was written by Detlev Glanert as a tribute to Richard Strauss’s 150th anniversary, taking inspiration from energy at the start of Ein Heldenleben.
