Jukka-Pekka Saraste, conductor
The BBC SO welcomes back conductor Jukka-Pekka Saraste for a concert in which the orchestra'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.
