Sakari Oramo (conductor)
Revel in the virtuosity of the BBC Symphony Orchestra soloists in this sumptuous Viennese programme.
Opening with Mozart's most sublime wind serenade, the Gran Partita, and ending with the wistful sophistication of Strauss's first suite from Der Rosenkavalier, the heart of the evening belongs to the strings for a performance of Schoenberg's Verklärte Nacht. In his setting of Dehmel's passionate love story, Schoenberg's saturated, chromatic harmonies reached an expressive, even operatic, intensity.
