Live from the Barbican, London. Jiri Belohlavek conducts the BBC Symphony Orchestra in Stravinsky's Dumbarton Oaks and Marc-Andre Dalbavie's Oboe Concerto (with Alexei Ogrintchouk).
Presented by Petroc Trelawny live from the Barbican, London
Moscow-born Alexei Ogrintchouk's cuttings book includes superlative reviews and details of a glittering solo and orchestral career. He joins the BBC Symphony Orchestra and its Chief Conductor to give the premiere of a new Oboe Concerto by Marc-André Dalbavie, explorer of 'spectral music' and discoverer of breathtaking realms of sound. Premiered in 1947 as Russia was reeling from the after effects of the Second World War, Prokofiev's 6th Symphony is widely regarded as his masterpiece.
