About This Event

Omer Meir Wellber’s first Bridgewater Hall concert as the BBC Philharmonic’s Chief Conductor opens with a first of its own: the UK premiere of Sofia Gubaidulina’s compelling Triple Concerto, written for the unprecedented combination of violin, cello and bayan (Russian button accordion). Greeted with standing ovations on its 2017 debut, it’s performed here by a trio of world class soloists, before another work rich in vivid orchestral colour: Bruckner’s towering Seventh Symphony, which made the reputation of the man who is now regarded as one of the Romantic era’s greatest symphonists.
