Live from London's Barbican Centre
Presented by Martin Handley
Kazuki Yamada, winner of the 2009 Besançon Conducting Competition, makes his much anticipated BBC Symphony Orchestra Barbican debut with a strikingly imaginative combination of works spanning just over a century of music. The 30-year-old's programme opens with Takemitsu's Requiem for string orchestra (1957) and includes the UK premiere of Thomas Larcher's beautiful Violin Concerto, written for Isabelle Faust and first performed by her in 2009.
