BBC Philharmonic 2016/17 Concert Season

Will Fulford-Jones

Millions of listeners enjoy BBC Philharmonic concerts on Radio 3, recorded or broadcast live from the outstanding acoustic of The Bridgewater Hall, making this orchestra one of the most widely heard in the country. But there is still no substitute for experiencing performances live in the concert hall, where the musical and physical power is intense and vital. For live audiences here in Manchester, this season is dotted with emotionally charged music – thrilling, tender, raw, shocking. Music which simply refuses to be forgotten.
