London Philharmonic Orchestra: The Symphony Lives

Henze’s Symphony No 7 conducted by Vladimir Jurowski

When Hans Werner Henze’s Seventh Symphony was first performed back in the 1980s, critics couldn’t believe their ears. Powerful, poetic and unashamedly grand, this is a symphony in the tradition of Beethoven and Mahler that speaks directly to audiences here and now. Vladimir Jurowski has paired it with two timeless 20th century classics by Stravinsky – and is joined by Thomas Zehetmair to perform the extraordinary post-war Violin Concerto by Bernd Alois Zimmermann: music that sings, yells and dances its way out of one of the darkest periods in European history. These are four masterpieces that simply demand to be heard. Please note: the value of the seat allocated will be between £19-£46. Being reseated into higher priced seats is not a guarantee, and will be done at the box office’s discretion subject to availability on the night.
