The BSO returns to concert-giving with a thoughtful selection of works, including Bach’s uplifting chorale, Ives’ “cosmic landscape” which poses the perennial question of existence, and Britten’s arrangement of the delicate second movement from Mahler’s Third Symphony, continuing Kirill’s ongoing exploration of Mahler’s music. The appeal of Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony is not hard to understand – boisterous, intense, energetic and tuneful – it remains one of the most powerful of all symphonic creations.

Ticket holders have free access to our Pre-Concert Talk featuring Andrew Burn, which is available to view online from the Monday 28 September.
