BBC SSO 2019/20: Bruckner Symphony No.8

Season Ticket bookings available from 14/03/19 General Ticket bookings available 29/04/19 “It’s not often you hear cries of ‘encore’ after a Bruckner symphony” wrote The Guardian in 2012 when Donald Runnicles and the BBC SSO performed Bruckner’s Eighth Symphony at the BBC Proms. If you already love the Eighth, this is self-recommending. If you don’t, all you need to know is that as well as some of 19th-century music’s most glorious peaks, this vast symphony also contains some of its most intimate poetry. Runnicles and soprano Carolyn Sampson have paired it with Dutilleux’s Correspondances; a meditation on the sweetness of life, expressed in music to pierce both heart and soul. Prelude: 6.45pm in the Recital Room Author Dr Caroline Potter introduces Dutilleux’s Correspondances with a portrait of the composer. Dutilleux Correspondances Bruckner (ed. Nowak) Symphony No.8 Carolyn Sampson soprano Donald Runnicles conductor Concert ends at approx. 9.40pm
