BBC Philharmonic Orchestra II
Saturday 20 June 7pm (ends approx. 9.10pm)From £5.00 to £38.00
Snape Maltings Concert Hall
Part of Aldeburgh Festival
Percy Grainger was an early pioneer in collecting and transcribing folk songs and his suite based on fieldwork in Lincolnshire is justly considered his masterpiece.
Also based on English folk tunes and dedicated to Grainger, Britten’s 1975 suite was one of his last works, its melancholy end fading to silence. In contrasting mood, Janáček’s Moravian melodies and rhythms contribute to one of the 20th century’s most uplifting orchestral works.
The programme is punctuated by what feels like a disruption in time and space, with an unending journey into the core of something – ourselves? our planet? – undertaken in the UK premiere of Cassandra Miller’s monolithic A Large House.
Booking opens on Tuesday 18 February at 10am
