A repertoire of romantic music, charmed to life by the supple playing of BBC NOW makes for a stirring concert whose atmosphere will be bottled and broadcast by BBC Radio 3.
Conductor Alexandre Bloch
There’ll be a hearty welcome in BS1 as the BBC National Orchestra of Wales returns to the Hall after last season’s exhilarating contribution to the BBC’s weeklong Brahms Experience in Bristol.
Whether coupling Mahler’s Resurrection Symphony with an exuberant orchestral celebration by Composer in- Residence B Tommy Andersson, or supplying the soundtrack to Doctor Who, BBC NOW is nothing if not versatile. Proms regulars, and BBC Cardiff Singer of the World mainstays, Wales’ flagship orchestra performs a programme of 19th century romantic music which will be broadcast live on BBC Radio 3.
With BBC NOW you are certainly in capable hands – as Bachtrack said of the orchestra last year: “the BBC NOW could bend to whatever the music demanded of them, whether that was jollity, tragedy or tranquillity.”
