Information about the programme

“Significant, original, mature in its form”: thus Hans von Bülow waxed lyrical at the young Richard Strauss’s Symphony in F minor. Before achieving worldwide fame with his tone-poems, Strauss wrote two classical four-movement symphonies rarely heard in today’s concert halls. Even the BRSO is giving its very first performance of the Second Symphony, a blend of youthful bravado and masterly craftsmanship. A biographical counterpart to this symphony is Elgar’s elegiac Cello Concerto of 1918-19, whose introverted orchestral sound and long, pensive melodic lines from the soloist exude an atmosphere of farewell and nostalgia. The French conductor Marie Jacquot, designated chief conductor of the Royal Danish Theatre Copenhagen, is using this programme to make her BRSO début. She will also introduce the audience to a piece by the Scottish composer David Horne: The Turn of the Tide, after a painting by John Duncan.
