About This Event
Rising young conductor Joana Carneiro, Principal Conductor of the Orquestra Sinfonica Portuguesa, conducts the BBC Symphony Orchestra with a programme of 21st century works that take inspiration from classical greats. At its heart is John Adams’s Bruckner-inspired Naïve and Sentimental Music. A symphony by any other name, this large-scale work delights in the slow-build and shift of patterns and pulses – Minimalism at its most maximal. Bach is the influence behind Golijov’s choral cantata Oceana, which marks the BBC SO debut of genre-bending chanteuse Nora Fischer and features the BBC Symphony Chorus.
