BBC Symphony Orchestra
I hope you’ve been enjoying our blog so far. Following the BBC Symphony Orchestra’s Ravel and Poulenc concert in the Barbican on Friday, the BBC SO is back at home in Maida Vale rehearsing for tomorrow’s Studio Concert which features no less than five BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists: the Apollon Musagète Quartet who will be performing music by Martinů and the multi-talented Mark Simpson who performs Magnus Lindberg’s Clarinet Concert, hot on the heels of our recent world premiere of his latest composition. You can hear the concert live on BBC Radio 3 on Tuesday at 2.00pm so do join us then or online at any time over the following seven days.
