Diana Burrell Concerto for Brass and Orchestra (BBC commission; world premiere), HaydnSymphony No. 83 in G minor ‘La poule’, StravinskyThe Firebird
BBC Symphony Orchestra | Jukka-Pekka Saraste conductor
The BBC SO’s brass section shines as soloists in this world premiere of Diana Burrell’s new concerto which is followed by Haydn and his clucking hen. Stravinsky’s The Firebird – the work that seized the ears of Paris’s elite with its urgent rhythms and evocative Russian folk melodies – offers a splendid ending to a colourful concert.
