Swansongs

Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra

Kirill Karabits returns to conduct the first of the season’s two mighty 9th symphonies, while Soprano Sally Matthews imbues Strauss’ Four Last Songs with glowing serenity.

Soprano Sally Matthews

Beethoven Coriolan Overture
R Strauss Four Last Songs
Schubert Symphony No. 9 The Great 

Tonight, Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra present two kinds of Swansongs: Schubert’s heroic and majestic 9th Symphony, entitled “The Great”, and Richard Strauss’ sublime and tender Four Last Songs. These are  entrusted to Covent Garden regular Sally Matthews, whose interpretation has been declared “ravishing” (The Guardian). Beethoven’s Roman rollercoaster raises the curtain.
