About this event

The BBC SO’s brass section shines as soloists in this world premiere of Diana Burrell’s new concerto which is followed by Haydn and his clucking hen. Stravinsky’s The Firebird – the work that seized the ears of Paris’s elite with its urgent rhythms and evocative Russian folk melodies – offers a splendid ending to a colourful concert.
