Concert Information

Join the BBC Symphony Orchestra and conductor Michael Seal at the BBC’s iconic Maida Vale Studios for an afternoon of recent compositions by some of the UK’s most exciting living composers. Written for the World Environment Day concert in 2013, Rachel Portman’s Endangered opens the concert. Following which, pianist Clare Hammond performs Edwin Roxburgh’s Concerto for Piano and Wind Orchestra. Sally Beamish’s work Diodati is inspired by the opening location of Mary Shelley’s novel Frankenstein, and the programme concludes with the world premiere of Gordon Crosse’s Symphony No. 3.

This concert will be recorded for future broadcast on BBC Radio 3.
