BBC Philharmonic 2017/18 Concert Season

Will Fulford-Jones

The BBC Philharmonic’s new Bridgewater Hall season brilliantly exhibits the glorious power of live music. From Mahler’s majestic Symphony No. 3 to Messiaen’s intimate Quartet for the End of Time, Shostakovich’s Fifteenth Symphony to Beethoven’s Fifth, this is music that truly comes alive in the concert hall. And with a number of world and UK premieres alongside several other significant and thrilling works being performed in Manchester for the first time, this is a season with its eyes fixed firmly on the future.
