Concert Information

Finnish cellist Anssi Karttunen joins the BBC SO for Henze’s Love Songs (1984–5). His orchestral fantasy Los caprichos (1963) was inspired by Goya’s series of etchings of the same name. Henze’s vast and varied output for the stage has made him an established name in the genre. His dynamic and haunting Ouverture zu einem Theater was premiered at the Deutsche Oper Berlin just before Henze passed away in October 2012.

This concert will be recorded for future broadcast on BBC Radio 3's Hear & Now.
