Concert Information

Betsy Jolas’s sophisticated and subtle songs for trumpet and orchestra, written in Paris in 1977, arrives first in our season-long exploration of music for soloist and orchestra by women composers. In Jolas’s beguiling wordless songs, Håkan Hardenberger’s trumpet will thread, shimmy and flirt its way around a colourful and compact BBC Symphony Orchestra.

Hardenberger also brings the lyrical grace and clarion brilliance of Haydn’s Trumpet Concerto to this concert under Sakari Oramo that revels in the symmetry and zest of the Classical era, including a symphony by Haydn written right here in London and one by Prokofiev inspired by it.
