Oramo and the BBC Symphony Orchestra at the Barbican – 13th April 2016



The ever popular Sakari Oramo continues his exploration of great British orchestral music with Elgar’s ground-breaking first symphony and Bax’s  tone poem The Garden of Fand.

While Bax’s work evokes the Irish legend of the siren Fand, Elgar wrote of his masterful symphony: ‘There is no programme beyond a wide experience of human life with a great charity and a massive hope in the future.’  The Barbican welcomes back Australian composer and violist Brett Dean to play his concerto .
