Change of artists & repertoire
Please note, in a change to the original programme, Tasmin Little will no longer be able to perform in this concert due to injury.
The orchestra are under the baton of Rumon Gamba for this afternoon’s concert, a live broadcast for BBC Radio 3.
Commissioned for the 40th anniversary of the BBC, we hear Tippett’s Praeludium scored for brass, bells & percussion, with each section conveying a different emotional character.
Our concert ends with the Third Symphony from Ruth Gipps a composer whose music is considered underrated, and before it, Malcolm Arnold's Symphony for Strings
