Series F2 - Symphonies of the Ages
In this Friday series you go time-travelling in music with beautiful symphonies from four centuries guided by a handful of great conductors.
It’s a long way from Haydn’s supple symphonies, which reach their destinations in twenty minutes, to Bruckner’s symphonic cathedrals, which are classical music in its most magnificent format. You can experience both – and much more – in this series, which offers a whole eight highly varied symphonies.
Hear the Danish National Symphony Orchestra in the hands of Principal Conductor Fabio Luisi and three of the orchestra’s favourite guest conductors: the Austrian world name Manfred Honeck, the Swiss comet Lorenzo Viotti, and the Finnish maestro Jukka-Pekka Saraste. It is a great pleasure for the orchestra to welcome the winner of the Malko Competition 2018, Ryan Bancroft, and to have a whole four of the orchestra’s own leading players on the stage as soloists in this series.
