Information about the programme

A Sunday morning in Harlem. Along the busy 125th Street in northern Manhattan there are parades going by, funeral processions, and Civil Rights protest marches – while a trumpet is blaring in the midst of it all. These are the sounds Duke Ellington heard in this New York neighborhood. Ellington helped spark the so-called Harlem Renaissance in the 1920s and 30s, and wrote his symphonic, vibrant jazz anthem in 1950 to express a newfound African-American optimism. A rather unusual piece for the BRSO, and certainly a very exciting proposition alongside Stravinsky’s Violin Concerto in D major, in which the Norwegian soloist Vilde Frang shows how far her fingers and bow can really reach … And after having had to postpone it several times due to the pandemic, the BRSO musicians can finally perform Rachmaninoff’s Third Symphony. The British conductor Robin Ticciati will thus present three distinct musical worlds in one concert.
