BBC Philharmonic: West meets East at The Bridgewater Hall, City Centre, 1 April 2017, from £12.00 - Book now

American conductor James Feddeck begins with two deeply evocative works from across the Atlantic. After John Harbison’s nostalgic, bittersweet foxtrot back into the world of The Great Gatsby, Samuel Barber’s Violin Concerto alternates passages of tender lyricism with sections of quite astounding virtuosity, tackled here by exceptional Canadian violinist James Ehnes. The second half of tonight’s concert comes from Russia with love: Rachmaninov’s immense, intense Second Symphony, soaked in passion and brimming with unforgettably romantic melodies.
