Concert Information

Yan Pascal Tortelier returns to the BBC Philharmonic to conduct a programme of French music which includes two works by a man he is passionate about; Albert Roussel’s symphonic poem Pour une Fête de printemps, and his virtuosic Suite in F show a composer fascinated by orchestral colour. BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist Andrei Ionita joins them as soloist in Saint-Saëns’s First Cello Concerto.
