From Bridgewater Hall, Manchester. Presented by Martin Handley. The BBC Philharmonic under chief guest conductor Vassily Sinaisky perform Moeran's Symphony in G minor.


Presented by Martin Handley

Chief Guest Conductor with the Manchester based Orchestra Vassily Sinaisky returns to the Bridgewater Hall with a reappraisal of Moeran's Symphony in G minor, which he first conducted last summer with the Orchestra at the Proms. The concert was described by The Times as a "a triumph..(proving) beyond doubt that being Russian needn't stop you understanding and loving the symphony's very British and 1930s mix of folk nostalgia and personal sorrow - and the jitters and shellshock of the war."

The Moeran is balanced by Elgar's In the South (Alassio), and Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto, performed by the young Chinese artist Tianwa Yang who makes her debut with the Orchestra.
