BBC SSO 2019/20: Dohnányi Symphony No.1

Season Ticket bookings available from 14/03/19 General Ticket bookings available 29/04/19 Tales from a dark century: Dohnányi is the missing link between 19th-century Vienna and the fiery modern sounds of his Hungarian compatriots Bartók and Kodály. His First Symphony is something of a passion for our Hungarian guest conductor Gergely Madaras; its opulence and emotion offer a telling contrast to the dark shadows and tense political drama of Shostakovich’s First Violin Concerto, written as Stalin’s post-war repression reached its height. Setting the scene is a new suite from Elena Langer’s 2016 opera Figaro Gets a Divorce – which relocates Mozart’s characters to a chillingly modern world of repression, nationalism and political instability. Prelude: 6.45pm in the Recital Room Composer Elena Langer introduces her Suite from Figaro Gets a Divorce. Elena Langer ‘Figaro Gets a Divorce’ (Suite) (UK Premiere) Shostakovich Violin Concerto No.1 Dohnányi Symphony No.1 Karen Gomyo violin Gergely Madaras conductor Concert ends at approx. 9.40pm
