Ryan Bancroft (conductor)
Continuing the Beethoven cycle with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, Ryan Bancroft presents the composer's fledgling first symphony and his iconic fifth, unmistakable from the outset. Between these two extraordinary works is a gem of the woodwind repertoire, Weber’s Clarinet Concerto No 1, written three years after Beethoven's fifth symphony, and also considered innovative for its time. The soloist is BBC NOW’s own Principal Clarinettist, Robert Plane.
Please Note: We’re very sorry to announce that Xian Zhang is unable to conduct these concerts as planned as she is unwell. We are extremely grateful to Ryan Bancroft for stepping in at short notice.
