The BBC Symphony Orchestra's Michael Tippett series opens with a rare opportunity to hear the Triple Concerto, a masterpiece of his late period when he confessed that he had 'turned my back with some pleasure on the cruel world'. And complementing Radio 3's broadcasts of the Ring from the Royal Opera House, the concert concludes with Henk de Vlieger's exuberant Orchestral Adventure through all the major scenes of Wagner's great opera cycle, beginning with Das Rheingold's magnificent Prelude and culminating in the destruction of the Gods and Valhalla.
