Concert information

As Anthony Payne celebrates his 80th birthday year, Stephen Johnson talks to him about his life as composer, writer and teacher – and about his work on the realisation of the sketches to Edward Elgar's Third Symphony, for which he is best known. Payne’s own compositions, however, are very much his own voice; here the BBC SSO, conducted by Martyn Brabbins, focuses on a selection of his music including 1985’s The Spirit’s Harvest, which was first performed at that year’s BBC Proms. There will be one interval of approximately 15 minutes.

Free tickets available from Monday 2 November 2015.
