BBC Symphony Orchestra: Strauss + Brett Dean

Sakari Oramo conducts Brett Dean and Strauss

The BBC Symphony Orchestra and its Chief Conductor Sakari Oramo launch the season with a UK premiere by its Artist In Association Brett Dean. Knocking at Hellgate is drawn from Dean’s much-admired 2010 opera Bliss and they are joined by the Canadian baritone Russell Braun. Richard Strauss’s epic and autobiographical celebration of a Hero’s Life, one of his most extravagant and popular tone-poems, provides late-romantic splendour. Please note: children under 5 are not permitted to enter the Barbican Hall with the exception of family concerts.
